Wishing you Joy!

This is my card for today's color challenge on SCS! Love the cool color palette of gray,soft sky, and pomegranite. I just picked up this "figgy pudding" paper yesterday and was so excited that it matched today's challenge! Score! I started with a little gift box idea on my card (the snowmen) and tied with a ribbon and hung a gift tag. I received my Restoration Hardware catalogue yesterday and fell in love with all the quilted bedding they are showing. Hence the quilted sewing pattern. I drew lines in pencil first and then just followed with my machine and soft blue thread.

I love to play with new toys....who doesn't? So my new Papertrey set was calling me. Perfect feeling for this card and the snowflakes fit right in. I added a few pearls to my sentiment and scuffed up the edges of the card and Voila! Love these colors together!

Here is a close shot of my little tag. I did a 2-step stamping technique with the 2 smallest sizes of snowflakes in this set. Topped off with a K&Co pearl, I thought it made a sweet little tag for my gift box.

Happy Stamping!
