Paper Sweeties Challenge - February 2017 "Anything Goes"

Hello and Happy February!  It's a brand new month and that means it is time for a new monthly challenge at Paper Sweeties:

The theme is "Anything Goes"!  And remember that if you do not have a blog you can play along by posting to our Facebook page "Paper Sweeties Inspiration".  Just go to the photo tab and find the album for the February Challenge.  Add your photo and you are entered!  And the prize is a lovely $25.00 Gift Certificate to the Paper Sweeties store!  Plus a chance to Guest Design with us too.  We love it when you play along and we get to see what you are creating!

For my card I decided to play with:
 Abigail Stamp Set

 Let it Snow Stamp Set:

I just love paper piecing this sweet coat and boots (or skates) from the "Let it Snow" stamp set!  I thought this would make a lovely card to send out for Valentine's Day which will be here before we know it!  I selectively inked the "Sending Warm Hugs and Kisses" sentiment to just show "Hugs and Kisses" and help it fit on my die cut heart.  The heart die cut is from the "Stitched Tags #1" sweet cuts set. I added some lovely oatmeal seam binding around my gingham background panel and tied a lovely bow.  Some sweet strawberry sequins and  a heart bling finish my card off nicely.

Here are links to all of the wonderful designers that are part of today's Challenge Blog Hop:
