Mittens and Scarves

This week's challenge at Bah!Humbug! is mittens and scarves. If you haven't been over to their blog, I highly recommend it. The DT examples are super, and the stories are very entertaining! (I look forward to reading them each week.)

For my entry, I've used only mittens, so I'm not really sure if I have satisfied the challenge.

The card is a simple white textured base with a scalloped circular journal page adhered. I used 3 layers of textured paper flowers and tied a pair of glittered mittens (cut out of a chipboard embellishment) to the clear gem brad in the center with some baker's string. I had a peel-off sentiment on the upper right area of the white card base, but it didn't look right to me, so I took it off (very carefully, so as not to ruin the card base). I may go back later and try to add a sentiment that follows the outline of the scalloped journal page. (It looks like it needs something.)

As always, thank you for taking a look, and for your comments. They are appreciated.


  1. That's a pretty flower and a cute pair of mittens. I am not good with white spaces so I would have to put something in the top right corner too, but I'm not sure what. Kate x

  2. Really lovely card. Love the non traditional colours. I am like Kate and would have to add something to the corners, maybe a couple of gems or something. Debs xx

  3. Oh so cute - love those dangly mittens.
    I'm not good with white spaces either so I would probably have a sentiment in there somewhere but then again it looks great anyway.

  4. Like the previous comments I think white spaces should be filled lol! I think your idea for a sentiment following the curve would look fabulous. As for those super-dooper cute mittens ... well I just wish I could reach into the screen and grab them! They're gorgeous. Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!
