Happy Friday everyone

Well it's time for Wags n' Whiskers Challenge #2. This weeks challenge is brought to us by the lovely Tina and she has chosen "Sitching.....Faux or Real". I just love the look of stitching on cards but I must admit it really is a challenge for me, I just can't seem to get it!!

The adorable image I have used on my card is "Zoe and Gemma's Snow Fun"
I had been wanting to try an easel card and I thought this was a perfect image for it.

I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. I added Diamond Dust to the snow, snowflakes, ribbons and bow. The snowflakes and borders are done with my MS punches. I added liquid applique to the pom poms on their hats and heat set it.
The DP is by Moxxie.
I really like making these easel cards, I'm sure I will be doing a lot more of them.

Be sure to stop by the Wags n' Whiskers blog to see the beautiful creations the DT have made to inspire you. I hope you will have time to play along with us this week.

Have a fabulous weekend
Thanks so much for stopping by.....
