I really like the colors in today's Color Challenge (CC622)...watermelon, navy & mint. I thought they would be terrific for a winter card. The dessert option was to use designer paper. Well...I made my dp; by stamping the winter words on the mint first using white pigment ink, then stamping them again, slightly offset in the pistachio ink. On the watermelon strip, I stamped them first w/ the coral ink, then w/ the white ink.
The mittens were die cut 4 times: once in white, and again in the watermelon, mint & navy colors then paper pieced together. The white snowflake centerpiece was added w/ just one word of the greeting in navy on a leftover circle of white linen c/s.
Thanks so much for looking! Closeups & the inside are on my blog: The Write Stuff

Cute winter themed card using those pretty mittens, Julie! I like your home made dp! Do people that receive these cards of ours really know all the love that goes into them? Sadly, I'm sure most people don't.
