"Smile" for Christmas

It's Saturday, the start of a 3 day weekend for some of us here in the U.S. and also the start of a new challenge with Saturday Spotlight! There were so many awesome creations from last week's challenge I can't wait to see what all of you will do with this week's one which is to go CRAZY with Snowflakes!! What a perfect time of year to do so!!
The card I created for the challenge uses a brand new stamps from the newest release from Belles n' Whistles collection called Sweet Things. This stamp is called Smile. I absolutely LOVE this collection and if you have not seen it or got any yet... what are you waiting for??
This is not a Christmas stamp but I wanted to show you how it can be used for another season. In fact, this stamps can be used for all 4 seasons of the year! Just add fall leaves instead of snowflakes...ya know what I mean? =) Anyway, I have used a sketch from Friday Sketchers for my card and did some sewing on each of the panels for added fun!
Be sure to check out the rest of the wonderful creations by the rest of the DT by clicking on each of their names here: Boni, Chris, Crystal, Darlene, Dawn, Erin, Jessica, Maria, Vicki.
Hope you'll join in on the fun!
