Holiday Card 36 - Hello Snow

Hi, everyone! You guessed it - I have another holiday card to share! It was tough to photograph with all the glitter, but hopefully you can see how sparkly it is! All month I've been inspired by the alphabet prompts over at Beccy's Place and her Month of Holiday Cards Challenge. November is almost over, and so is the alphabet, so I'm revisiting the letter "S" for Snow and Sparkle.


This adorable candy cane kitty image is from Gecko Galz Candy Cane Lane; it was part of a blog hop freebie a couple years ago.  I love mixing vintage images with modern elements!  I fussy-cut the image and popped it up on foam tape.  The "brrrr" background paper and cute sentiment are from AC Digitals - Crate Paper Snow and Cocoa.  The die-cut snowy hillside is from Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders, and the sparkly red paper is from Heidi Swapp.  The holographic leaf trim is from my Dollarama stash, and I stapled it on each end as per the sketch below.

Here is the sketch that inspired my card:  Tuesday Morning Sketches 481.

Such a darling card! I love how you used the sketch for the fun sledding kitty. Thanks for joining us at Tuesday Morning Sketches.

Your card is gorgeous and sparkly Kitty, love all that glitter! The cute kitten looks like he's have a fabulous time riding down the snowbank on his candy cane sled. Love the sentiment and the sparkly silver leaf banner across the top.
I can absolutely relate to the background of your card... whenever I've seen snow (which isn't often)... that's exactly what I say and for how long I say it too!
Cheers,
Beccy
