CCMC HOL4 - Holiday Sketch Challenge

Good Morning, Stampers!

It's time for another Saturday Card Challenge at Create with Connie and Mary! This week's challenge is to create a card with this sketch:

I pretty much stuck to the sample layout for my card. I just think this design is so cute! 

To recreate this card, start with a Marina Mist card base and emboss it using the Northern Flurry embossing folder. Next, take a piece of Whisper White cardstock measuring 2" x 4". Cut along the long edge using the Finishing Touches Edgelits, emboss again with the Northern Flurry embossing  folder and adhere to the card front. Next, cut a doily from Soft Suede cardstock from the Sizzix Delicate Doilies die. Adhere that to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals. On a seperate piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the mug/steam image with Marina Mist and punch using the 2 1/2" circle punch. Adhere to the doily.Stamp the sentiment in Marina Mist. Tie a small bow from the Whisper White Sweater Trim and adhere it to the card with glue dots. Finally, add several rhinestones for bling!

Super how you used the snowflake background for 2 of the layers. Sure looks like winter is coming and the hot chocolate is perfect for warming up the chill!
