Warm and Cozy Silhouettes

Hi there! Happy Friday to you! I made this card for Sharon Johnson's (aka notimetostamp) Stamp Simply Challenge to make a warm and cozy card in the style of Tammy Hershberger (aka stampertammy). I love Tammy's style, and it's a rainy, dreary day, so this challenge was a good one for me! I used my new SU! goodies, so that was a bonus, too!


I think this Sweet Always paper has a homespun feel to it, especially when paired with Pocket Silhouettes. This is my all-time favorite color combination! I added a little sponging and machine stitching for some extra "coziness." When stamping on the patterned paper, I stamped off once -- I did the same for the rose background images on the main panel. I also did this week's Ways to Use It Challenge (using white gel pens) -- I drew white dots around the sentiment.

I hope this card makes you feel warm and cozy -- I know it does for me! I think I'm gonna curl up in a blanket now -- thanks for stopping by today! :)
