PAPER PRETTIES SNOWFLAKE KISSES and SCS SKETCH CHALLENGE SC164

Last night, I made this card for SCS Sketch Challenge 164 using the mittens image and sentiment from the Paper Pretties stamp set, Snowflake Kisses. I used an unusual color combination of Elegant Eggplant, Soft Sky, and Basic Black. Odd combo, but I like it! I used Frosted Lace Stickles on the cuffs and snowflakes of the mittens, and the mittens are "hung" by a Lilac Ice Square Rhinestone Brad. The Ticket Corner Punch was used on the large Elegant Eggplant piece, then I Paper Pierced three holes to surround the punched corners. The horizontal Soft Sky piece is Paper Pierced above and below the ribbon.
