Warm Winter Wishes

Winter has shown it's chilly side. We have had snow, ice and cold blowing winds!!  Brrrr!!!  What a great time to send some warm wishes out to the ones you care about.  I created this card fro a special friend of mine.  It was also perfect for the new Card Caravan Challenge over at The Hybrid Chick.  The theme is "winter".

I used several digital items to create this card. The digital kit that I used is Winter Solstice by Kimeric Kreations.  The sentiment is from a set of digital stamps by Arty Pants called Card Sentiments 2. And the layout for the card is from Winning Ribbon Card Templates with Cutting Files by Paper Garden Projects. I opened the cutting files in my Silhouette Software and then dragged the digital papers into the shapes.  The cocoa mug and snowflakes are shapes from the Silhouette Online Store.

Vellum made the perfect "steamy" look with a little bit of Stickles bling. All the papers are inked for added dimension.  I added pearls to accent the sentiment.

I hope you are enjoying the winter months and staying warm too!
