Winter Wishes with The Stampsmith

Hi Dreamers!
I would like to say an extra special "Hello" to new followers.  Welcome aboard!  We have fun here in dreamland.  LOL.  Today, let's warm up some icy blue papers with warm winter wishes!  I have made this winter all occasion card with an image from the Flappers #1 Full Sheet by The Stampsmith.

One of the great things about Stampsmith Stamps, is that they make such a great focal point.  All you have to do is layer some paper and presto---a fab card!  I stamped this lovely Flapper with black dye ink on glossy white CS.

I layered the image with black and Not Quite Navy CS (Stampin' Up) and added in some  icy blue glittery papers  (My Mind's Eye).  For just a touch of interest and texture, I used a corner punch on the two right hand corners.  Of course, this lovely lady needed some bling--blue rhinestones.

On the inside I stamped a wintry themed sentiment.  This card will be sent out to a friend to brighten her day.
She lives in Arizona, so I think she will like the chilly colors.  LOL.

Oh!  I think my Lovely Flapper would like to be entered into the following challenges:
365 Cards: rounding the corner
Little Red Wagon: bling
Craft Door Magazine: anything goes
Craft Our Passion: vintage/shabby chic
Cupcake Craft: January Blues
Vintage Stamping: vintage
Creative Moments: Monochromatic
Cute Card Thursday: beat the blues

Don't forget to pop over and join in with The Stampsmith January Challenge--The theme is to use a recycled item and at least one Stampsmith stamp.
So, let's see, what will I have for you tomorrow??  Oh, I know, I will share some of the kids cards I made to send to Operation Write Home.  I have to take the rest of the photos and I will have those for you tomorrow.  Hope to see you then.  Have a super Thursday!!  Love ya.
