Warm Winter Comforts 2 (Unity Stamp)

Hello, everyone!  This month I'm going to get in early over at Unity Stamp Company's [be inspired] challenge!  I was immediately inspired by their gorgeous colour palette (see below).  I'm also entering Unity's Friends with Flair linky party with this card.  I guess you can tell I really want to win some Unity Stamps!  I only have two Unity stamps so I'm using the same set I used the other day - Itty Bitty Warm Winter Comforts.  I coloured it with my Prismacolor pencils, added a little pompom on her hat, and sprinkled white glitter along the snow.


The sentiment is stamped on polka-dot vellum and cut with my Taylored Expressions Banner Stacklets 1.  I used my Memory Box Frostyville border and layered it over some BoBunny paper. Next I added a strip from a red paint swatch alongside a sparkly silver trim.  Lastly I affixed a snowflake button and a couple of sequins.  I like how this turned out!

Hey girlfriend...you know I love the die cut border. Gorgeous card. I created a monster when I used a paint strip when crafting with my grandson. The hardware store is now one of his favorite places! Good luck in that Unity Challenge. The prize package is awesome!
