Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #29

I made this card for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #29 found HERE. I used shades of turquoise and purple with a black background. The stamp I used is called Warmth for Winter by House Mouse. The instant I saw it I had to have it, because my mother knitted all her life, and it just reminded me of her. I stamped it on wc paper and colored it with Tombows. I cut out squares of cardstock and embossed them with a small CB ef. The stitches on the black background are rubons that I've had for eons. The ribbon came from my dear friend Heidi, and the primas were in my stash along with the brads and clip. The sentiment on the side is a sticker from DCWV.
Thanks for stopping by today, and I wish you all a very happy Thanksgiving!
