Winter birthday ....

...  Hello!  I hope everyone has had a good weekend and is ready for the coming week.  I've had a super time and now that we're back to "normal" weeks, I hope to be back into my "normal" routine!  I've a birthday card to share with you this morning.

Stamps: My Favourite Things - LJD Cozy Mittens; Winnie & Walter - Winter Wonderland
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Pink Pirouette, Tempting Turquoise, Gumball Green, Melon Mambo; Archival - Jet Black
Dies: Die-namics - Cozy Mittens; Spellbinders - Shapabilities - On the Edge (S5-168)
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Pink Pirouette; SU DP - Pink Pirouette; Kaisercraft DP - Mistletoe

I used the layout from this week's MFT Card Challenge - MFTWSC#212 and the colours from Colour Throwdown - CTD#326.  I like these bright, cheerful colours and think they're just right for a winter birthday card.  I die cut a scalloped border along one edge of the design paper and adhered it to the card.  I cut a strip of white card, layered on some pale pink paper and adhered the panel to the card.  I die cut the mittens from white card and then stamped on the base colour and decorations.  I stamped the mitten string directly on the card and adhered the mittens with dimensional gel.  I finished the front with a simple birthday greeting.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of pale pink card and on the white panel stamped a mitten with a fun greeting.

One of my favourite sports is Figure Skating, and being in the States means I get to see much more of this sport on TV.  I watched the US Championships over the weekend - it was super.  I also found out that the 2016 World Figure Skating Championships are being held in Boston next year.  I'd love to go and watch it all live, but it's not cheap!!  I'm going to have to do some thinking!!!  Bye for now.
