Baby It's cold outside

WAHOOOOO!!! Can you tell I am excited? Dawn's color combo challenge is back! Isn't that yummy. Okay enough of my gushing LOL! Izzy's babysitter is sick, so we are home and it is really fun to be able to get some fun crafty things done. Izzy loves to craft as well, so it is fun for both of us.
Here is my card
I wanted to give a close up of the fun mittens and snowy bling background
Okay I broke the law a little bit with the white, but I do have another one and it will have cream. It is getting colder here and although we are no where near snowflakes, I have had hot cocoa and that gets me thinking winter. I must also admit this card I made a few days ago and just haven't uploaded it yet, but hello it works great for this challenge and I really like how it turned out so hopefully it will be fine.
I stamped the white with the essentials glue pad and then put dazzling diamonds on it to create the sparkly snow. The mittens were paper pieced together to get all of the fun colors in. My daughter has her mittens hooked together like that, so I thought it would be such a cute little kids mitten look.
It's a good life!
