CCT and PAPERTAKE WEEKLY.....MEET HERB WITH TEACUP




Well this card today covers 2 challenges,Cute Card Thursday Challenge 37 which this week the theme is "Snow + snowflakes" and Papertake Weekly which is "Let It Snow!,Let It Snow!,Let It Snow!.
I've used one of my new Whiff Of Joy stamps "Herb With Teacup",love all this new Winter collection...i've coloured using Promarkers,Prisma's and alittle ultra fine glitter,i've cut him out and shaped him alittle,then used Silicone glue to raise him up from the card.
The background is printed off an Artylicious CD "Seasons Greetings"and i think it's perfect for Herb.
The sentiment is also a Whiff Of Joy stamp,alittle freebie from Katharina that came with some other stamps i had awhile back,thank you Katharina.
The extra snowflakes were punched out with a Dovecraft punch,i've added gems to some of them.
I've threaded a cord through so that the card can be either free standing or hung up,the cord was from my bit box,the snowflake eyelets are by making memories.
