Very Merry Sunday

Hi All!

Hope you're having a nice weekend. We got our first snow of the season yesterday so now everything is a pretty, fluffy, and white. It looks beautiful, but brrrr it's cold outside!

I was bored this afternoon while hubby was watching football so I decided to do a little crafting. This is the card I came up with using this sweet Belles 'n Whistles image. Erin is a guest DT this month and she kindly shared some images with me.

I've used some BG Eskimo Kisses papers and the sketch from BasicGrey Challenges. I also distressed my papers with the blade of a pair of scissors. I think it adds some nice texture. I colored the image with Copics and highlighted with white gel pen and glitter pen accents. I've embellished with organdy lace ribbon, rhinestone gems and brads, some prima roses and a flower with paper leaves. I also added glimmer mist to the flowers. The sentiment is from SU!'s short and sweet set.

This card also fits the challenges at:
Saturday Spotlight: Christmas Flowers
Crafty Creations: lace and distressing

Thanks for dropping by today! See you back here tomorrow. Be sure to stop by Janna's blog for a chance at today's Whimsy Advent Candy treat. Happy stamping! :)
