Warm and Cozy

Time for another Crafting for all Seasons Challenge and this week the theme is Texture.  We have two fabulous sponsors this time - Meljen's Designs who are offering our winner four digis of their choice and The Paper Shelter who are offering a $20 gift certificate, I just wish I could enter.

This is the card I made using the gorgeous Meljen's Designs image 'Cozy Winter Owl':

I just loved working with this image, I coloured it using my ProMarkers and then added some flower soft to his hat and the snow on the branch.  I then cut the image out before layering it onto an embossed die cut.  I layered the Dovecraft papers onto my new favourite Core'dinations - Tim Holtz Kraft-Core, I don't know how I managed before Core'dinations.

I used my edgeabilities to cut a border strip from the same Core'dinations card stock which I then embossed with a wood grain embossing folder and added some raffia and a charm.  A stamped sentiment, die cut snowflake and punched snowflake with gems in the centre finish the card.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

This is the inside of my card, I have decorated it to complement the front:

Image:  Meljen's Designs - Cozy Winter Owl
   Papers:  Dovecraft - Jolly Happy Christmas
Tools:  Spellbinders - Edgeabilties Classic Ric Rac, Scalloped Ovals, Scalloped Circles and
Create-A-Flake Three,
 Darice Embossing Folders - Wood Grain and Snowflake
Embellishments:  raffia, charm and gems from stash
Sentiment:  Creative Expressions

I would  like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Jingle Belles - Not a CREATURE was stirring

Oh I love this Pauline, what a fabulous card. The image is lovely and a great choice of backing papers and embellies. I haven't tried the core'dinations cardstock yet, but am very tempted.
