Hope, Faith, Love... 29

Hi there! I hope you are having a great week! Today I have a trio of tiny treasures to share featuring pretty paper from Pion Design's My Beloved Son collection along with sweet images from the Grandma's Attic ~ Fairytale of winter:
I joined along with the current Our Creative Challenge challenge which is to create ATC's ~ Artist Trading Cards which need to be 2.5 x 3.5 inches in size or Artist Trading Blocks which need to be 3 x 3 x 3 and have a Christmas, Hanukkah, Winter Solstice or otherwise seasonal festive theme.
So keep in mind, these little cards are 2.5" W x 3" H!
I added texture and design using textured crackle paste and a Tim Holtz stencil. Once the paste was dry, the crackles appeared like magic! I then randomly applied various Distress inks:
I embellished each card with a sweet image from Grandma's Attic ~ Fairytale of winter which I die cut to fit inside a die cut crackled snowflake:
I'm also joining along with the Virginia's View Challenge where the theme is All Things Distressed
Many thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you enjoyed my tiny treasures!
Be Sweet ;)
