52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown - Louise's Sketch #15

Well here it is time again for another great challenge over at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown and with a new month comes a new hostess - Louise.  Here is my card based on Louise's fab sketch:
Using some more of that fun SU Snow Festival DSP on today's card.  This is the first time I have used the mitten punch that I just had to have from the holiday mini.  I ran it through the Big Shot using the square lattice texture folder to give it the look of a knitted mitten. The ribbon is sweater trim in gumball green - doesn't it look snuggly?  It did make that sentiment panel kind of hard to get on the card though because of the thickness of the ribbon so I used some extra dimensions and popped the whole panel up a bit - have a look. 
And here's the inside - I left it mostly blank for more room to write my message and used the other mitten mate on the inside.
So there you have it for this week - I hope you like it!  I'm so proud of myself that I am continuing to keep up with the insides each time.  I haven't yet branched out into doing the envelopes yet - baby steps you know, but I'm considering it :o)  Hope you will decide to join us this week for Louise's sketch challenge over at 52CCT.  Please pop in and visit here to see what the rest of the DT has come up with.  Oh... and we have 3 new DT members starting this week - Deborah, Patricia and Sarah. We are so happy they have joined us!  

Thanks so much for visiting me today - I'm sure glad that you did.  Til next time... hugs and happy crafting! D
