Keeping Warm

It's time for a fabulous new challenge at House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge and our theme for this fortnight is Silver and/or Gold hosted by Sue Drees, for my card I've used a decoupage image from Joanna Sheen's House-Mouse Christmas Project Book.

My papers are from the Crafter's Companion The Snowman paper pack and I used silver Mirri card stock.  The scalloped circle is a Spellbinders die cut, the border is a Fiskars edge punch and the snowflakes are a Simon Says Stamp die.  To embellish I added some ribbon, silver twine and a sentiment from my stash.

We have two fabulous sponsors:
