Sweater Kitty on Mitten

Hello, everyone!  Today I'm sharing a winter-themed card in pastel colours!  As usual, I was inspired by a number of challenges.  

Clear stamps:  Newton's Nook Sweater Weather (kitty and snowflakes), Newton's Nook Winter Memories (sentiment)
Dies: Designed by Nicole Christmas Mitten, Poppystamps Lovely Gift Bow, Gina Marie Designs Stitched Rectangle
Embossing folder: Die'sire Embossalicious Let it Snow
Patterned paper: Klouise Digiart
Glitter cardstock:  Darice
Other:  Recollections small snowflake punch, white snowflake sequin

I stamped, coloured, and fussy-cut the sweater kitty so I could pop her up on foam tape.  I created the sky background with Distress Oxides (shades of blue), adhered a snowflake-embossed hand-cut snowy landscape, and then die-cut into a mitten shape.  I die-cut the other parts of the mitten and adhered.  I stamped the sentiment and snowflakes in black and then adhered the mitten to the die-cut patterned paper.  I adhered the stitched rectangle panel to a blue panel and then finished the card with a die-cut bow, three punched snowflakes, and a snowflake sequin.

I was inspired by the following 8 challenges:

Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas 524 Optional Feature a Creature UE

Kat Scrappiness Winter 1/3

Let's Squash It 4 Use an Embossing Folder and an Animal 1/3 C8

Word Art Wednesday 473-474 AG w Uplifting Sentiment 1/5 wk2

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

Oh Kitty, how sweet and cute!!! And such fabulous idea putting a so lovely scene in a mitten! It's a clever idea, and looks really great! That sweater kitty is adorable, is one of my favourite Newton's stamps, in my wish list by age! And the embossed snow-bank is really delightful! Your sky is just perfect and there are such lovely details, as that glittered bow and snowflakes!!
Hope all is well for you! Take care and enjoy life as possible!
Big hugs!!
