This is today's sketch challenge over on SCS. I like the simplicity of the layout, but it ended up being quite 'busy' on my card because of the patterns I chose from this DSP pack "Snow Festival". I used lots of new product which will be available on 1st August (next week, yikes!); the green wool sweater trim, the silver designer frame and mini brads, the mitten punch ... all too cute for words! Here's my card and some close-ups so you can see the dazzling details on the mitten end.

Stamps : Make a Mitten, Petite Pairs
Ink : Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple
Cardstock : Shimmery White, Soft Suede, Snow Festival DSP, Gumall Green
Accessories : Gumball Green Sweater Trim, Flourish Designer Frames, Mini Brads, Mitten Builder Punch, Dazzling Details, Word Window and Curly Label Punches, Dimensionals

.... and one more thing ~ this is Rhaegar my daughter's new puppy. He's a Smooth Haired Collie and 12 weeks old. We picked him up the day after we got back from England and he's settling in well. Can you see how much Sarah loves him from that expression on her face? Too cute! (His ears are taped over and braced, she's hoping to show him so his ears have to conform ... in case you were wondering, and no, they don't bother him!)
