Warm Winter Wishes

Good morning friends.  Today I have a card that I made for 3 different challenges:

Just Us Girls word challenge - Winter.  I used snowflakes and a snowman.

The Paper Players - "Everything Old is New Again"

ETA:  My card was chosen as A Cut Above at The Paper Players.
I have been organizing my dies on magnetic sheets and was getting ready to throw away the packaging for the dies and remembered The Paper Players challenge to create a project using a recycled or re-purposed item, so I cut my MFT Stitched Snow Drifts and Polka Dot Cover-Up from them. (I am saving them for future projects).  Here is a photo showing them cut out:

and the Merry Monday Christmas challenge - use snowflakes
I used MFT Let It Snowflake die and cut the 2 larger snowflakes and added a silver brad and mounted them with foam tape.  The card base is MFT Smooth White and the blue is SU Soft Sky.  I stamped the sweet MFT Holiday Hugs Snowman in Mememto Tuxedo Black on X-Press It Blending Card and colored him with Promakers, fussy cut him out and mounted him with foam tape between the two snow drifts diecuts.  The sentiment is from the same set. The top snow drift is also mounted with foam tape.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.
Happy Stamping,
JoAnn
