Winter Wonder

I have another winter/Christmas card for the stash.

I struggled with the burlap strip on the left side - it seemed to need something, so I added some stitching. Not sure I love it, but I don't hate it either, so here it is and here it be. I may give it another go and play around with the layout as I stamped out 3 or 4 of these images. Might change the shape of the card altogether, hmmm... would love to hear your ideas...

This one I created for:
Merry Monday - snowflake
City Crafter - burlap love
Shopping Our Stash -  Happy NEW Year - use something new

I do love the mitten die - Thanks Danderella for loaning me that one - ahemm, I think I maybe inadvertently hung onto that one much longer than was polite! thanks again!

Here is the inside of my card using a sentiment from my recently acquired Unity stamp set "Like a Snowflake" - love this set - you will be seeing lots of it!

Thanks for visiting!
Shanna :)

What I used:
sentiment, snowflakes - Unity ...like a snowflake (December 2014 sentiment kit)
image on front - CTMH Winter Wonder D1241
outdoor denim ink
MFT mitten die
Bella bling, twine, embroidery floss
