Winter Trees

Another Kim Hughes set Winter Trees.
My son actually sat with me (age 10) and stamped along side of me, giving me insight and ideas. His snowman had a hand drawn/colored pink cameo scarf (too cute!!). This was for a challenge over on SCS, but I didn't write down for which one. HA. It was a sketch challenge I believe. :)
At any rate, it was a bit of inspiration that I needed to get going.
Have you ever checked out all the sketches that are available over on SCS?
Check them out HERE.
I can't say this is my favorite card. I flubbed up while inking the grey layer and so had to use buttons to hide the error. I didn't want to try to sew through all those layers (half laziness, half fingertip survival) and so I used linen thread through them before hand (a little illusion there for you ladies!) and then used glue dots. BUT... the knot at the back of the button was too bulky... and so it goes. Not good. BUT, the snowman IS cute.... and it reminded me how much I love the look of paper piecing. :)
Not to mention that I was stamping with my buddy... so it was all good! :)
