Snow Babies

Ever since I first laid eyes on the adorable Snowbabies Colored Digi Set and  Button Up Baby Bingo Set from Daydream Designs, I have wanted to play with them.  Well, last night I was finally able to sit down and get creative with these adorable sets.  I hope you will stop by Daydream Designs to take a peek at these, and ALL the adorable images available in Diane Noble's digital shop, Daydream Designs to pick up a little Christmas gift for yourself.  You will just fall in love with all her darling images.
For this card, I simply printed out four (of the six) Bingo cards found in the Button Up Baby Bingo Set and sewed them to a purple Bazzill background (which is also machine stitched).  I left room behind one of the Bingo cards so that you can tuck a gift card inside - I thought that would make a neat gift-giving idea.  Next, I cut out three of the adorable little girls, two of the buckets of snowballs, and a few of the individual snowballs from the Snowbabies Color Digi Set and I put a little glitter on them.  Finally, I attached some buttons with baker's twine, and for the sentiment I just used a Melissa Frances rub-on and tied some baker's twine around it, and of course......more glitter!
 
These are the challenges I'm entering with this sweet little Daydream Designs card:
