The Challenge 63-Warmest Wishes

*** Scroll down to the post below or click HERE to see my card for this week's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! *** 

The Challenge is back with a new challenge! Since it's the first Monday of the month, we're featuring a sketch for this week's challenge.

Warmest Wishes card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from My Favorite Things
Even though it's almost the start of spring around here, I used the sketch to make a wintery greeting card with the help of dies from My Favorite Things.  I cut the hat and mittens from two shades of blue cardstock and layered the pieces, then used foam tape to adhere them to a piece of patterned paper with a knit-like pattern.

The panel was matted on kraft cardstock, then adhered to a pale blue cardstock panel.  I stamped the "warmest wishes for a happy holiday" sentiment from the Hug in a Mug stamp set near the bottom of the panel in kraft pigment ink.  The finished panel was adhered to a blue card base.

Check out what the rest of the talented team at The Challenge has created based on this week's sketch.  Here's where to find them:
