Kittens in the snow

I saw this stamp on Lili of had Valleys inspiration blog a few weeks ago and bought it with my brother in law and his girlfriend in mind.  They have two cats who are very adventurous and always out hunting.  So this may be the Christmas card for them.

The stamp is Fur Cones and I've used ProMarker to colour the image monochromatic in browns.  I've added some white Americana Writer and Glamour Dust from DecoArt for the snow effects.

The image is mounted on some brown paper from Enchantment before mounting it onto the layers of papers from Solids - Always and Forever, Krafty Christmas and Enchantment.

I bought some embellishments especially for Christmas cards from The Ribbon Girl this week.  Here I've used two different sized pine comes and some rusted bells I bought from them.  The bells are tied with some brown string and attached to a craft card with a hand written sentiment.  Both of these were from Hobby Craft as were the black self adhesive gems.

The brown leaves were part of a set I got from Wild Orchid Crafts a few months ago.

I'm going to enter this card into the following challenges

Creative Card Crew - Stripes
Creative Inspirations - Brown & White or Vintage Style
Crafty Catz - Winter Theme
GraphIt - Monochrome
Wags n Whiskers - Add Some Leaves
Paradise of Stamps - Winter
Fantasy Stampers - Cute Christmas
Lili of the Valley - Merry Christmas

Happy Saturday :)
