My Favorite Things!

Happy Monday everyone! I was hoping to get oodles of stamping done while I was home on Christmas break, but things do not always go the way that I plan. I have had a restful break though, and I'm excited about going back to school tomorrow. I managed to squeeze some stamping time in today and I made this card for the My Favorite Things Guest Design Contest and I also used the last sketch of 2011 from the My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club.

Here are all of the details for this card. I started off with this sweet Pure Innocence image from the My Favorite Things Flurry of Love set. She is mostly paper pieced with Echo Park papers and I used a few Copic Markers (E000, E00, E01, E23, E25, BG10, BG11, and BG13) to color her up. I added R37 for the heart on her winter coat and lots of Star Dust Stickles for the sparkle. The sentiment is from the Snow Day set. It is stamped onto a die cut that I made with the Die-namics File Tab die. My other accents include a few Papertrey Ink buttons, some machine stitching, and I also used the Die-namics Simply Scallops die and the Die-namics Hearts a Plenty die. Thanks so much for stopping by to visit with me today! Have a lovely week...Toodles! :D
