This week's challenge is sponsored by the loverly folks at Crafty Sentiments! The theme is "Tag You're IT"...in other words...use a tag somewhere on your card. Pretty self-explanatory, really.
When I saw this image, it reminded me of a scrapbook layout I did of my nephew when he was about 4 (he's 21 now). He was all bundled up in a snowsuit with the cutest rosy-cheeked grin on his face. I titled it "Buttons Keep My Coat On, You Keep Me Warm". This cute snowman stamp reminded me of that layout.
I wanted the only color on this card to be the stamped image, but I didn't want to use a white background for the rest. Enter my dear bosom friend, Kraft paper. I wanted to create a warm and inviting scene...like you're looking out a window at these two snowy people from inside a cozy holiday home. I designed and paper-pieced the entire card by hand. Anywho...here it is!
