Sweet La La Whimsey

The challenges from yesterday were so much fun that I decided to make another card...this time with a sketch from Sweet'N'Sassy stamps at their challenge blog The Sweet Stop! with a twist...so use red, black and cream! I used buttons as asked for by Whimsey Stamps and I did some more paper piecing (I think that's one of my FAV techniques of all time!) check out La La Land Crafts...lots of fun challenges there!
Fun challenges ladies...I might have to play again before the weekend is over...with Sunday being my 30th Birthday and all I might get lucky and win something! LOL

For the main image on this card I went a la Cindy Haffner and embossed the whole image with the swiss dots Cuttlebug embossing folder so it looks like snow is falling on her...pretty neat huh! I love how Cindy does this...I hope she doesn't mind me coping her!
Stamps: Sherri in the Snow By Rubber Romance
Ink: Stazon black
Paper: retired DS paper, whisper white, basic black, creamy carmel
Accessories: buttons, embossing folder, gingham ribbon, sponge, nesties lables 3
Thank you sooo much for stopping by and for all the well wished from yesterday! I feel much better...amazing what a good nights rest will do for you! LOL
Have a blessed day, may you be the light in someones dark day!
