Warm Wishes and a DT Call

Whiff Of Joy Challenge blog is looking for some new crafters for their design team.  I am entering this Christmas card using this week's sketch and this adorable Henry Mouse With Hot Chocolate rubber stamp. 

I used the colors red, citrus teal and white. I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils. I added frosted lace and christmas red stickles to the snowflakes, Henry's scarf and his hat. I also added teal rhinestones to the snowflakes.  I added piece of teal with snowflakes ribbon behind the image.  I used a snowflake border punch to help make the red cardstock below the sentiment pop a little.  Then I added a little red baker's twine to it and tucked the corner of the sentiment into it.  The white strip of cardstock at the bottom is embossed using a cuttlebug embossing folder (dots). To finish the card I added 3 red rhinestones to the top corner.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
