Hero Arts Holiday Challenge: A Few of My Favorite Things!

It's been too long since I participated in a Hero Arts challenge:



One of the challenge themes is "A Few of My Favorite Things" - use at least one HA Holiday stamp along with a fave technique to create a Christmas/Holiday/Winter card.

I'd have to say one of my fave techniques is still paper piecing and I pulled out an oldie but goodie HA snowman from CG109 Share the Joy cling set and some patterned paper from Echo Park "This & That" collection to create a Christmas card:




Did a little tone-on-tone stamping using HA CG359 Stitched Greetings bg stamp with Stampin' Up old olive ink on a piece of old olive cs.  Sentiment is from HA CL540 Christmas Reindeer set.
Other Materials Used:  MFT banner die, Creative Impressions twine, pom pom from stash

Thanks for all your supportive comments!
