MFTWSC216 - Warmest Wishes

Another weekly sketch over at MFT Card Challenges with MFTWSC216. Finally had some time to play, color, and create something with this cute stamp set and thought this sketch would be perfect for it. In addition, I'm joining the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge with this week's challenge of using texture.
Here is my card:
Here I actually started by using my blending tool and one of the newest MFT colors called Blueberry to create the sky background and added some snow using the Snowfall background stamp along with some white embossing powder. 

Played around with the Stitched Snow Drifts for a winter scene and than grabbed some Lemon Chiffon card stock  and cut a circle using the Stitched Circle Stax .
Colored her in using my Copic markers and than decided to add some hearts falling into the snow using Tag Builder Blueprints#3 set along with a new color called Cherry Crisp to balance the card. As always she is popped up using foam mount along with popping up the base to add some dimension. Sentiment is from the same stamp set: Warmest Wishes.

As always, don't forget to stop over at the challenge sites and see all the wonderful inspiration from the design team and awesome entries.
