Mitten Joy:


Good morning all!  I do hope you have been enjoying your weekend so far.  It has been oh so very cold here, for the most part -40C (-40F).  You know it's cold when Celsius and Fahrenheit meet =)

With that being said, my card is reflects how to dress in Canada - wearing mittens!!

I started with Reverse Confetti Diagonal Stripe Pretty Panel and Class Act Confetti Cuts.  I added a Paper Smooches Joyful Greetings sentiment in Onyx Black VersaFine.  I then finished the card off with American Crafts twine, Studio Calico mini clothespin (?retired), and a Darice sequin.  

My felt mittens are recycled from a mass produced greeting card that our office received for Christmas.  I knew I could cut them out and give them new life.  And I did just that.  I coloured them with a BG05 Holiday Blue Copic and attached the mittens to my card - viola!






I created this card for the following challenges:

Enjoy your weekend - stay warm!!!!

OK - that is scary cold!! I am hoping you are staying inside and crafting! I love how you have used the angled panels - the diagonal striped panel, the big twine bow and the clothespin work perfectly with the fun angles! Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
