Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

It's that time of the month again - no, not that time! Time for Papertrey Ink's monthly blog hop!

The theme this month was to use more untraditional color combos and create something for the holidays. I took my cue from this color comnbo and the image:

 
And here's my card:


(Sorry - the lighting is awful on this photo!) I used the Soft Stone cardstock and impressed it with the new Striped Sweater impression plate. I also used the Striped Sweater stamp set to add the lines of Aqua Mist "knit" to the background (yes, I cut my stamps so I have a single row. I am fearless with acrylic stamps! LOL) The sentiment is from the Happiest of Holidays set and the mittens are from the Winter Swirls set and they are hanging from some white shimmery thread I wrapped around the card. The whole thing is mounted to an Ocean Tides base and then on to a white card.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy hopping!

Mary, the impressions are so warm and lovely. Sweet card.
I think taking a good picture is the hardest part of blogging! I'm never satisfied with my photos.
