Inside Cozy, Outside Frozy

Oooh, I was just dying to get home today because I knew I was going to have some happy mail waiting! Sure enough both the UPS man and the USPS lady left me presents: my SU order and my new special HSN Cuttlebug Embossing Folders Holiday Collection! What delightful toys to come home to! I was eager for my SU order because it had my first package of Kraft cardstock in it. Oh my! I am already so in love with it! I "HAD" to use it right away! There have been several color combination challenges in the blogging world lately which have used it, so I went a looking and found a combo just right for the card I made tonight:
Kraft, Basic Black and Melon Mambo!

This card uses another fabulous stamp from the set Snow Happy by Paper Makeup Stamps. I really wanted to feature the new CB folder called "Snow Flurries" on this card because not only is it beautiful, but it gave me the texture and design I knew would be perfect for this stamp. I brought in the Melon Mambo to the image with just a simple gemstone, but I think it really ties everything together.

This card is for challenges:
CC242~ Krafty Black Melons
Card Positioning Systems #141 (CPS141)
Cupcake Crafts Challenge #65~ Snow Much Fun

Card Details:
Snow Happy (PMS)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Paper: Kraft, Basic Black and Melon Mambo (SU)
Accessories: black grosgrain ribbon, adhesive gem, dimensionals, "Snow Flurries" Holiday CB Folder
