Bundle Up and Catch Snowflakes

     Today is "S" day at Beccy's Place 30 Days of Holiday Cards and and I'm using Milton Giraffe who's catching Snowflakes while he stays warm all wrapped up in his Scarves.  Scarves are very necessary for a long-necked giraffe who lives on the savanna in Africa and definitely isn't used to Snow!  Just think how bad a Sore throat would be in a neck that size.  :-D


     I used a pre-colored image but I added Seafoam glitter to one of the Scarves and to the Snowflake.  I cut the image with a die from Spellbinders and layered it onto a Scrap of burlap cloth, then added those to the card front.

     I wrapped Snowflake ribbon around one side of the card front and added Sparkly Snowflakes on top of the ribbon.  The Sentiment was printed and die cut with another die from Spellbinders.

Superb card NC, and you've out done yourself with all the "S" words in your post. I really like the textile background, the burlap adds great texture to your design and is a lovely contrast for the pretty snowflake ribbon. The die cut mat is awesome too. Wonderful job!
Cheers,
Beccy
