Chilly Willy....

I mentioned the other day how I made my first ever easel card, and I can safely say I am addicted to this style. Thanks to Crazy for Challenges for challenging me to do this, as well as providing a fabulous link to a great tutorial! I made this little card with the super cute sketch at Sunday Sketch and Stamp, and Cupcake Craft wanted to see something that was "Snow much fun!" This card is pretty little - it is only 4" square, but perfect for this stamp I won from Peachy Keen Stamps a while ago. Finally, using the recipe from Stamp Something, I limited myself to 1 ribbon, 2 papers, and 3 embellies... For such a little card, it sure holds a lot of challenges!

Ingredients
Papers: Basic Grey, MyMindsEye
Image: Peachy keen
Embellishment: sparkly brads from stash, vintage ribbon
