Paper Sweeties January 2016 Inspiration Challenge

Happy New Year and Welcome to the Paper Sweeties January 2016 Inspiration Challenge!

Aren't these colors just wonderful!  I love the deep brown with the Aqua and white!

I decided to play with the wonderful Paper Sweeties "Stitched Tags #2" to create a sweet pair of mittens.  I love having cards on hand that have sentiments like "Sending Warm Hugs and Kisses" from the "Let it Snow" stamp set as they can be used for Get Well cards or to send cheer to someone who needs it. 
I added some cream felt and heart gems to the mittens to create cuffs and created an oval diecut panel to place the mittens in.  It is lined with some tulle netting which I taped to the back side of the panel before attaching it to my brown card base. A bow tied with some kraft colored raffia around the card base finishes it off nicely.

I hope you will hop around to the Design Team's blogs to see all of the wonderful January Challenge inspiration:
