it’s Christmas

Hi all!  Today’s card was made using the Waltzingmouse sketch:

PlayfulPinwheels4

I used one of my fave new sets, Playful Pinwheels, and papers from MME Lost & Found Christmas paper pad.  I stamped the little pinwheel on 2 different papers and pieced them together.  Then I stamped the frame from Very Vintage Labels No. 18 onto a sheet of Night Before Christmas text paper and die cut it out.  I stamped the stick for the pinwheel and then attached the pinwheel with a brad that I airbrushed green to match.

The sentiment is from the Frame-It set and was die cut with a Stampin’ Up! die.  The star button is from a·muse|studio and is tied with twine from Papertrey Ink.  Finally, I stitched around the base paper with 2 strands of embroidery floss in a matching green.  This is also for the Belli Challenge – Christmas.  I hope you like it and TFL!
