Warm Winter Wishes Everyone!

I know!  I know... it's only the first week of Fall... what am I doing making Christmas cards?  Well I tell ya, it's my favourite kind of card to make.  There is always some sparkly to add or a cute image to colour.  It's my favourite time of the year by far.

Today I'm sharing a card featuring the "Warm Winter Wishes" stamp by Flourishes

I stamped my cute little snowman onto Flourishes Classic White Cardstock first.  This cardstock is by far the BEST cardstock for colouring with Copics.  It takes the Copic ink so well, doesn't pill and allows you to blend several times if needed.  I hoard this stuff!! :)

All of the patterned papers I used for my card are from the new BasicGrey "25th and Pine" collection.  I just love the red and greens paired with navy and beige!

I even used some Spellbinder Classic Oval dies paired with "Create-a-Flake Five" and "2013 Snowflake Pendant" dies.

Here's a quick peek at the inside of my huge 6x6 card...

All of the snowflakes and the sentiment are from the "Warm Winter Wishes" stamp set too!

For my card design, I used sketch #224 from Sweet Sketch Wednesday for this card:

And I also combined it with the newest Merry Monday Challenge #76; to use a snowman on your card!

Thanks for stopping by.  Make sure to check out my Timeless Tuesday Challenge post this week!  I'm doing a little stamp GIVEAWAY!  Check back tomorrow for details!
