Winter wishes 23

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, November 16, 2017 @ 12:22 AM | , ,

Hi there! Today I'm honored and thrilled to be a guest featured on the Stamps and Stencils challenge blog. The DT has beautiful projects to share ~ please be sure to visit the Stamps and Stencils challenge blog. The current challenge is all about Pastels. Here's my take on the challenge:
To create my card, I inked the background then randomly stenciled snowflakes.  Next, I randomly heat stamped and heat embossed snowflakes. I embellished the card with a pair of die cut ice skates which I painted and stitched up. I topped it off with die cut sprigs and a fancy bow.
I'm joining along with the following challenges: For sketch inspiration, Fab Friday challenge as well as the Simon Says Stamp: Monday challenge where the theme is It's a Stitch Up: (the laces are all stitched up) and
Merry Monday challenge where the theme is Outdoor Activities:
Thank so much for stopping by!

Your card looks awesome! Strangely, I was looking at some yellow paper today and wondering whether I could use it for a Christmas card and, if so, how I'd go about that. Now I know it can definitely be used for holiday cards. You're such an inspiration!

Beth Norman said...

Oh my this is so lovely. Love the skates that look so real. The yellow behind the white is unique and really intriguing.
