My Favorite Things....

I was asked to be a guest designer for FCCB!
This is so exciting and I have been searching my brain for a special design,
and so I chose "My Favorit Things" as my theme.
I used several cartridges to complete my project.
Tree Winter Woodland @ 3 1/2
Snowman Winter Woodland @ 3
Mittens Winter Woodland @ 1 3/4
Sled Speaking of Winter @ 2 1/2
Snowflake Damask D├ęcor @ 2 3/4
Copper Kettle Campin' Critters @ 1 1/4
Jingle Bell Christmas @ 1 1/4
Gift Christmas @ 1 1/4
Rose 50 States @ 1 1/4
Horses Rubber stamp from JoAnne Crafts
Small snowflake Fiskars punch
The white card front mat was embossed with the CB snowflake folder to start. Green baker's twine was added to the top and all images were popped to add dimension.

Silver metallic paper was used to make the tree shine, a small green gem embellishes the snowflake, shimmery silver memory thread
holds the mittens together,
and small silver snowflakes add more sparkle.
The song lyrics, "My favorite things," come from the Rogers and Hammerstein hit, "The Sound of Music," and along with my own saying; make up the inside sentiments.
I then chose items from the song itself to adorn the rest of the card's interior.
I think this would make the perfect birthday, just because, or pick-me-up card.
