Glitter n Sparkle DT - Anything Goes

Hi, everyone!  It's Sunday, and that means there's a new challenge starting today over at Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog! This week our theme is everyone's favourite - Anything Goes!  I hope you can join us! I chose this beautiful wreath from Pattie's Creations called Christmas Wreath 2014. I coloured it with my Prismacolor pencils and fussy-cut all around, including the middle.

I was inspired by the style of Kittie Caracciolo and created a scene with die cuts to show off my Christmas wreath.  I love how it turned out!  I always use my leftover snippets to make my die cuts - it's a great way to use up scraps.

The background panel was embossed with Tim Holtz Alterations Bricked.  The door, fence, icicle border, and kitty are from Impression Obsession.  The trees are from Your Next Stamp, and I crimped them with my Fiskars wavy crimper and added white Flower Soft to simulate snow.  I hand-cut the snowy landscape in front and crimped it as well.  I added loose white glitter to the icicle border.  For the door knob, I used a clear gem.  I added a few tabby stripes on the kitty - this is the first time I've tried this.  I wanted him to look like one of my boys, although they don't go outdoors LOL.

Please come over and join us at Glitter n Sparkle for our Anything Goes challenge. We have some fabulous prizes up for grabs again this week, so I hope you'll play along!

Here's my tip for Top Tip Tuesday:  When fussy-cutting a stamped image directly on the black outline, use a black marker around the edges to hide the white edge of the cardstock, resulting in a more finished look.  

Thank you for looking at my card!  Wishing you a joyful day!

Like the scene. Wonderful brick embossing. The arrangement w/ wreath & cat is snow much fun. Glad there's no snow here. Had rain yesterday and there is more rain in forecast for this Super Bowl Sun here in Central TX.
