Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Wrap Up Warm

Please scroll down for my Penny Black Saturday Challenge DT post

****************************************

This week, it's Andie's turn to choose the theme of the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge and she has chosen:

'Wrap Up Warm'
Show us projects with woolies/winter clothing on.

I decided to make a pair of mittens from patterned papers (from the 'Countdown to Christmas' pad by My Mind's Eye)...I used an outline image I found on Google for the shape...and tied them together with some button twine. I embossed the background using my Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes' folder...inking around the edges a little. The lettering was cut using my Cuttlebug 'Olivia' alphabet.



I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
