Crazy for mittens

Whew! The card that I'm going to show you took me ages to make... and I don't even know why!
It's true that being a 3-D project (an easel card), it takes some more time to decorate & assemble, and also true that my little girl had an especially cranky day, but still... At least it looks decent lol! :)


This card combines three challenges, and these are:
- the sketch (JUGS6) from Just Us Girls, applied to the upper panel;
- Favorite Things Challenge at Flourishes Newsletter - we are to pick a phrase from a Christmas song and create a project around it, and I chose "warm woolen mittens";
- C4C10 "Easel Card" at Crazy 4 Challenges.

This is my first easel card, and I really like the way it looks. It's a simple design after all, but my goodness, does it make a statement!
The mittens and the sentiment are from Verve, and they were a freebie! Woo-hoo, now I can say that I finally got to use their lovely stamps lol!
I wanted the shapes of the five snowflakes to be only subtly outlined against the background, thus I popped them up on mounting tape, so that it's not the colour, but dimension that exposes them.
I added some silver string, rhinestones to the mittens, and a large white button to support the upper panel.

Thank you for stopping by, I appreciate your comments!
