A Four-Challenge Card

Good morning,
My post today is for four challenges.  I'm excited to use my new Oliver stamp that I won at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp Challenge #4 *thanks Kimmie*.  I had fun combining challenges for this card, starting with the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp Challenge #5 - Stitch It Up.  I gotta say, the stitching on this one was anything but smooth.   Not sure if it was my machine or my technique, but it sure was trying.  Got it finally on my third attempt.  Anywho...  The second challenge is for Crazy 4 Challenges Week 10 - Easel Card.  You should check out the really cute cards from their DT - such great ideas.  The third challenge that I followed was the Friday Sketchers 77.   I love this little snowflake sketch.  The last challenge that I manage to play was for the Cupcake Craft Challenge #65 - Snow Much Fun.

The paper is from Close To My Heart.  I added the sewing and some ribbon, from my trusty ribbon drawer.  I cut out Oliver, popped him up and added some Stickles to his hat and glaze to his cup.  I sprayed the large snowflake and sentiment with Glimmer Mist.  I believe the sentiment is from CC Designs (?)  Oh... And I paper pieced part of Oliver's hat to match the paper.

Here's a look from a different angle.  Hope you like it.  Yay...  My first Christmas card, only 29 more to go!

Have a great day and stay healthy.
