Little Thank You Card

Just a quick post today....I made another little 3.5 x 3.5 inch card. I incorporated all of the categories for the current Hero Arts Challenge in this one little package.
Visit the Hero Arts Blog and join the Flickr group to play along with this month's challenge!

On to the card.....
It's a thank you card for my aunt and uncle who we recently visited. I used the challenge colors of kraft, cranberry, slate blue, pine and snow. And I added some fun little shiny bits with Glossy Accents (on the window panes and bow) and Frosted Lace Stickles on the tree and snow.

 Here's a different angle to see the shiny stuff better.

Stamps used: CL463 Get Merry- tree
CL464 Sending Holiday Cheer- house
CL389 Mi Casa - sentiment
CL446 Sew Artsy - stitching trim
LL635 Textures and Patterns - Dot Pattern
Inks used: Memento Tuxedo Black, Color Box pigment ink Frost White, Distress Inks- Forest Moss, Crushed Olive, Stormy Sky.
Papers used: Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather (paper pieced house). Kraft and white cardstock from JoAnn's. Hero Hues Layering Paper- Punch.

~ Psalm 37:3-5 ~
"Trust in the Lord and do good.
Then you will live safely in the land and prosper.
Take delight in the Lord,
and He will give you your heart's desires.
Commit everything you do to the Lord.
Trust Him, and He will help you."

Have a wonderful weekend!
