Time for another create card sketch

Time for another Create-A-Card Sketch. First the sketch.
And this is what I came up with...a note card.
I used Sew Many Card's Mittens to create this frosty card. Northern Missouri (where I grew up and where my Mom still is) got 8 inches of snow yesterday so it's still appropriate mitten weather! (I have something I need to mail to Mom so I'll include it in the note card.) I changed the three bouquets to two pair of mittens and made them "dangle" from the top piece. I colored them with my alcohol markers and used the markers to also put the faux stitching border.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges...
1) I Love Digi : Think Pink
2) One Stitch at a Time: Stitching
3) Magical Craft: Something for Mum (Mother's day in England)
4) Stamp with Fun: Stitching (again)
5) Digital Tuesday: A Card for Mum (again)

Thanks for looking and thanks for leaving me a comment. That makes my day when you do (that's why I do this).

Hi Cheri, thanks for your entry to I Love Digi. I am sorry to say that to qualify it must be predominantly pink and you only have a small pink border on your card, we were looking for LOTS of pink lol!!

Good luck in your other challenges ;)

Very unusual card for Mom but with 8 inches of snow I'm sure she could do with a warm pair of mitts. Thanks for playing at Magical Crafts.
