With Love

With Christmas just around the corner. . . . 62 Days!!!..... I decided it was time to get a move on my Christmas cards.  I created this 5"x5" square card using Snowy Hug from Magnolia Stamps.   The sketch I used is from A Gem Of A Challenge
The embossing across the middle is done using a cuttlebug embossing folder (snowflakes) and is for the challenges at Charisma Cardz and One Stitch At A Time.  I added a little brown sugar baker's twine across the middle of the embossed strip. For the double or nothing challenge at Beary Sweet Challenges I used 2 colors (brown and blue), 2 small snowflakes, 2 large snowflakes, 2 words (with love), 2 brown pearls, 2 blue pearls and 2 characters in the image.  The challenge at ABC Christmas is to use your unused stash.  My unused stash is the cuttlebug embossing folder.  I've had it for a while but this is my first time using it. I punched snowflakes out of white card stock for the getting punchy challenge at Magnolia Down Under. I added crystal stickles to the snowflakes and the snowman for the sparkly challenge at Christmas Stampin All Year Long

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
