For You: Sweater Sweet


Sweater prints: I am currently obsessed.  Nordic sweater prints: better still.  What's not to love about giving cards the cozy feel of a favorite sweater?  Nordic Spring from WaltzingMouse is a great set... it perfectly captures the essence of classic hand-knit patterns. Pair it with houndstooth and doilies for a shabby chic card with a touch of winter charm.

The WaltzingMouse Sketch Challenge inspired my design... 


... thanks for popping in.  Happy Columbus Day! ;)

Be still my beating heart! I just love a well crafted bit of background stamping and boy did you deliver! I don't have any of the Nordic Series from WMS but you may have just pushed me over the line.

Your card is divine. The colors so rich and the layering of the die cuts just sublime. The bit of vintage crochet trim is pretty darn special too. Wonderful work once again.

Ohhh GORGEOUS, Denise! Love the colors you chose for your sweater background and the houndstooth "stripe" adds such a fun detail! The Prima trim is a perfect fit with this cozy card, as is the saddle stitch ribbon, cozy as can be! Love the little sentiment circle you created, TOO!
