SNSS - Winter at Home

Well, I was making this card for a sketch challenge but so much was going on in my life for the past week that I missed posting it on time.
So, I found these other great challenge blogs that fit right in with my card.
The links are listed below. Be sure to check out each of them and participate. They are so much fun!!!.

The first one is Sew Many Cards, Challenge 11, which requires SEWING on their cards. Well, this is my trade mark so I had to participate.

The next is Digital Tuesday, Challenge 31, which required flowers on the card.

The next was The Creative Card Crew, Challenge 35, which required Ribbon and Gems.

Now, onto the card.
 The stamp set I used for this card is called Winter At Home, from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps and designed by Chris Dickinson.
This is just one of the images in the set and also comes with 4 word sayings. To see the complete set, just click on Winter at Home above.
The image was colored with Copic Markers, red stickles used on the red stockings, liquid applique and clear glitter used on the green stockings, and yellow glitter used on the fire and candle flame.

I used a retired paper pack from Close to my Heart. Colors are Vineyard Berry and Ponderosa Pine.

The ribbon is Vineyard Berry Grosgrain and the Embroidery floss I used for stitching around the card matches the Vineyard Berry. 
The pine sprigs are a punch and the flowers were white and I colored with Copic Markers. 
The Half pearls were colored with Copic markers to match the paper.
