CAS89 - A "Couple" of Mittens

This week's Clean and Simple Challenge on SplitcoastStampers (CAS89) is a Sketch by kstamper.  Karen's coloring is just beautiful and the design is inspired.  I'm honored to be on the Fall DT with her. 

The original challenge was for the CAS Fall DT to make a card with a "couple" of things.  Not sure why this new challenge gave me so much trouble but I had major brain strain trying to come up with a card.  Then it would not photograph worth a plugged nickel!  I think it may be the photographer!


You can't see it, but I added subtle dots of glitter on the inside of the embossed panel and the snowflakes on the mittens.

Supplies: 
Paper - SU Taken with Teal, Neenah Classic Solar White
Ink - Taken with Teal
Stamps - Retired SU Holiday Sampler, Hero Arts Wavy Winter Wishes
Accessories - Spellbinders Rectangle dies, MS twine, Glitter Glue pen, Art Institute Angel Dust glitter


                                          
Pin It!

Fabulous card, Charlene! I had trouble getting started with this sketch, too! Love the use of Taken with Teal for a fun winter card color.
