Warm Mittens

How about we switch gears here today from fall to the holiday season?!!  I love fall and all the wonderful colors, scents and goodies, but then again, I love the Christmas holiday and all the wonderful colors, scents and goodies!  No wonder it's so hard to not gain weight from fall on....too many goodies to resist!!

On to the card for today...

I used the Mitten Dollar Digital Image from Designed2Delight.  I love a cute pair of mittens and remember all too well having 4 little ones and keeping track of 8 mittens.  Of course, when they were real little out came the mitten clips and then...no more lost mittens.  I printed the image twice, colored and cut it out.  I used the sketch for this week from Our Creative Corner.  It's a fairly simple sketch and one that worked great with the mittens.  The DP is Holiday Dots by The Paper Studio and I used the Swirls embossing folder for the white layer.  The bottom mitten was glued directly on the white panel and the top mitten is added with foam tape.  I didn't have a sentiment to fit a round shape, so I created my own on the computer.  I used a Fiskars edge punch for the loopy scallop and some silky green ribbon and a couple red pearl stickers finish this card.  I am very pleased with the way this card turned out.
