Winter Mittens Thanks

Happy New Year's Eve! I found a little time to stamp! Yea! I made this card for Verve's Winter Mittens Contest. The image was a free download back in October that Julee generously made available again through the end of the year. You can download it here. My color inspiration came from the cupcakes in Sparkle's Christmas Card Challenge #4, but I don't think that my card fully qualifies for her challenge. I did use a winter image, but I opted to turn it into a thank you card since I need to send quite a few of these out very soon!! Finally, I used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch #50 for my layout.

My colors are actually Chocolate and Aqua, though it looks more like Black. I also embossed the Chocolate panel with Snow Dots, but it's impossible to see in the photo. This is such a fun image -- I printed out several more so that I can make more thank you cards!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you all have a fabulous New Year's Eve (I'm fairly certain that I will not be awake to ring in the new year!)!!!
