Oh my goodness! I haven't stamped in weeks (with the exception of prepping for a class a couple of weeks ago.) This was soooo much fun! I must say that I could have stamped for the rest of my life and and never have come up with this color combo on my own, but I really like the way it turned out. These challenges are great! I love cut away cards and the challenge was just the excuse I needed to take the time to make this. I had this idea floating around in my mind all day at work today.
Snowmen and mittens are embossed on Almost Amethyst CS using versamark and Bravo Burgundy classic ('cause I don't have it in craft) with HH EP (my fave for everything!) Then I painted them with bleach to make them almost white. Then watercolored with classic ink (Bravo Burgundy and Mellow Moss) and an aquapainter. Snowflakes around the edge are white craft ink and HH EP. Sentiment is colored with versamrker pen then burgundy marker, then embossed with HH EP. Moss BG piece is stamped with plaid in versamark, then trees in moss them snowflakes in white. Frame piece is raised on foam tape. This is really sparkly in person - may not show in scan. I think I got the ribbon idea from Lindsey (thanks!)
Sorry so long-winded. Can you tell that I'm really excited to upload something finally???!!!! Thanks for looking! Please join the challenges! Go to the challenge forum from the home page!

Jami, Jami, Jami. This is one of the cutest cards I've ever seen with this set. I have the set and never seem to be able to capture anything I like with it. I am going to have to try and copy yours (compliment, compliment, compliment!!!) I even emailed this card to one of my customers who just purchased the set. I always seem to love everything you do. There are tons of your stuff in my favorites. Keep em' comin".
