Winter's Joy

Happy Tuesday!

Hope you're having a great week! We've been busy getting back into the routine of life since our holiday vacation. Slowly but surely things are returning back to normal. Hope you are finding your way back to normal too.

Today I want to share a card I created using the Whimsy Stamp's Winter's Joy from our Crissy Armstrong Collection. This is my first time coloring her up, but I know it won't be my last!

I decided I wanted to make a Valentine's themed card with pink and red so I took out my new Bo Bunny papers, thanks Janna! The edges have been stitched on the sewing machine and I've used the sketch from this week's Sunday Sketch and Stamp challenge. I've colored the image with Copics and then framed with Oval Nesties. Then added some glittery touches with Stickles. I've finished off with flowers, sticky pearls, a glitter heart and button with a sentiment from the Friendship Ticket set.

This card also fits the challenges over at:
Papertake Weekly...Anything Goes
Bunny Zoe's Crafts ....Sparkle and Shine
Crafty Emma...Anything Goes
Stamp Insanity....Sparkle
Sentimental Sundays...Friendship
Sundays with Crissy...Winter is Here

Thanks so much for dropping by today! Hope you have a fabulous afternoon!
