Willow with Gingerbread Heart

Happy Monday, all! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Sunday was windy and rainy here. We stayed in and I did some coloring! =) I made a card for Challenge #93 over at the Whiff of Joy Challenge Blog.


The challenge is to make a Christmas card without using the traditional red or green colors.


I used the beautiful Willow with Gingerbread Heart for my card. She is such a beauty!


The patterned paper is from Memory Box's Gossamer and Dewfrost collections. I cut Willow out using the out of frame technique, masked her then inked and stamped the piece with spun sugar when the paper was still in the die. The seam binding is dyed with the same ink and the sentiment is from the Teeny Trees set by Waltzingmouse Stamps.

That's all for today. Hope your week is off to a wonderful start!



Thanks for stopping by!
