Sweet snowman card

Hi! The challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown is use a previous theme. I chose their July 2015 "Snowman" theme because I wanted to use this adorable digi by "From the Heart Stamps"! This digi is such fun to embellish with Glossy Accents and Stickles for that sugarplum look!

Thanks for stopping by!

Gratitude: new theme at Cards In Envy

The new challenge theme at Cards In Envy is "Gratitude". I thought it was a good time to make a Thanksgiving card with these cute little pilgrim bears, which I colored with Copics. I can't find a record of where I found the bears; if anyone recognizes them let me know!

As you know, Cards In Envy requires A2 sized cards that are flat for mailing. The bit of mesh ribbon I used is very thin and squashes down flat enough to meet the requirement. I love the rustic look it adds to a fall card.

Can't wait to see what you create for this fun challenge at Cards In Envy!
