Baby It’s Cold Outside ~ Friday Sketchers

Friday Sketchers - Page 042

Happy Friday! Thanks for stopping by! I received my Whiff of Joy Winter kit a few days ago and it didn’t take long before these beauties were E-Z mounted and ready for action! I have used this very sweet and somewhat chilly Willow for my Friday Sketchers card. This week, the amazing Aud is hosting and has provided us all with a great sketch to follow. We have such great sponsors here at FS and this week it is Sassy Studio Designs that will  generously give a prize to one of our lucky participants!

All the stamps in the winter kit are wonderful and picking one was hard but I had a plan in mind when I saw the sketch and this image was perfect for it. The whole time I was working on this card, the song “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” was playing over and over in my head (hence my blog post title) ….in fact I realize that I must have been singing it over and over  because now my little one is walking around singing it!

I paired this chilled Willow up with the WOJ bench and added Polar White Flower soft around it and on top of it. The background behind is a piece of glitter paper and the fancy border was done with an EK success punch. The final touch was to add some dots with Liquid pearls.

The WOJ sentiment is perfect for the card once you pull out the tag and see what is attached!
