Merry Monday #87

Hi Everyone,

Just popping in quickly to share a card I made for this week's Merry Monday Challenge.  We were asked to create a card with a mitten(s).

My card:

For my card, I wanted to create a snowy scene, keeping it soft and on the clean side.  I began with Whisper White card stock, and a second layer of the same.  The branch was die-cut with the Memory Box Woodland Branch, and the tree trunk was hand drawn.  I printed the mittens on X-Press It Blended Card and colored them with Copic markers.  I thought it would be fun to hang the mittens from one of the branches, so with some black floss, I looped it over and adhered it to the mittens.  Using Memento Summer Sky ink, I created snowy slopes.  To complete the winter scene, I sprinkled some fuzzy flock on the branches and on the ground.

Here is a close-up:

The sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping Elegant Christmas Sentiments, and was stamped in Memento Tuxedo ink. 

I am also adding my card to the following challenges:

Inspired by Stamping - December Customer Gallery Contest
CAS On Sunday  - Christmas!
Simon Says... - Let it Snow
CAS-ual Fridays - Let it Snow
