Snowy Mittens

Good morning!  I have a card to share using this week's From the Heart Stamps sketch...there are still a few days left in the challenge, so I hope you will play along.  One random winner will win a $5 voucher, and all who enter will win a $1 voucher to the store.  Here's the sketch:

Isn't it a great one?  Get busy!

I had some great paper in my stash that's very textured, so I thought it would be fun to paper piece the mittens.  Don't ask my why, but I thought it would be fun to get out the acrylic paint and glitter...I will say I did have fun, but made quite the mess.  LOL  Loose glitter is so much messier, in the winter, when the air is so dry...static cling!  Anyway, I painted and sprinkled to my heart's content.  I finished the card with some snowflakes embellished with Swarovski flatback crystals

The sparkle snow is such a great accent, Angela ! I also like the paper pieced mittens. I have to try this more with digi stamps.

Never even THOUGHT about the static being a problem! No wonder I've been making more of a mess than usual :P
I love the textural effect of using the paint - and this is such a cozy looking card!
