The Four Seasons Challenge Blog - Winter Theme

Hello All and Happy 1st Day of February.  Today begins a new challenge month at the Four Seasons Challenge Blog with our continued theme of Winter.  

Based on the inspiration photo, I've created a Valentine's Day Card for my hubby using the "new to me" layering Heart Builder Stencil from Altenew.  He loves all the cards I create for him and he actually saves them.  He's a great guy and so supportive of my crafting.

My card measures 5.5" square and I've stenciled the background using Catherine Pooler inks.  The large heart was die cut from glitter card using one of the newest heart die sets from Kat Scrappiness and the sentiment is also from Kat Scrappiness.

The Gingham ribbon is from Gina K. Designs and is lovely against the red and pink heart background.  

We would love to have you share your winter themed projects with us this month at The Four Seasons Challenge.  Hope to see you there!  Until next time, Happy Crafting.
