Winter Hug

This is my second DT card for the Crafting for all Seasons Challenge, this week the theme  is 'Texture' and we have two fabulous sponsors - Meljen's Designs who are offering our winner four digis of their choice and The Paper Shelter who are offering a $20 gift certificate, fab prizes aren't they.

This is the card I made using the lovely coloured image 'Warm in Winter' by The Paper Shelter:

I cut the image using a Spellbinders circle die and matted it onto a Scalloped circle of plain grey card stock.  The papers are from a Willow Designs CD and I have stitched them onto the same card stock.  I used my Tim Holtz 'On the Fence' die to make the little picket fence and then ribbled it for extra texture.  The snowflake is another spellbinders die along with the Ironwork Motifs die that I think makes a perfect large snowflake.  Some gorgeous Creative Expressions ribbon and a stamped LOTV sentiment complete the card.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

I have decorated the inside of my card to complement the front:

Image:  The Paper Shelter - Warm in Winter
Papers:  Willow Designs - Walter and Winnie does Christmas CD
Tools:  Spellbinders - Ironwork Motifs, Scalloped Circles and Create-A-Flake Three,
 Tim Holtz Alterations - On the Fence
Embellishments:  Creative Expressions - ribbon, gems from stash
Sentiment:  LOTV

There's so much I like about this card - the image, the 2 'snowflakes', the picket fence (love the ribble effect) and the BP. Have i missed anything? LOL! Thanks for joining in this week with a cute wee puss cat.
