Little Miss Muffet Challenge - Textiles

Good morning!  Happy Thursday!  Hope you've had a good week!  Sorry I've been MIA again, but I have a family member who's been ill and there has not been any extra time for crafting or blogging.  Still, I couldn't miss my DT post for the new Little Miss Muffet Challenge! Yes, we have a new challenge starting this week and the theme is "textiles" - use fabric, lace, yarn, etc. on your creation.  There are so many possibilities for this one!

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Blue Bayou and the patterned paper is from the K & Co. Elizabeth Brownd Christmas 12x12 pad.  I love that these papers can create a scene all on their own.  For my textiles, I cut and stitched a scrap of white felt over the snow in the scene to add dimension.  The cute winter image is Saffron from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  She was a freebie last year and I think she was my first LMM stamp!  I fell in love with all of the cute images at LMM and the rest is history!  I printed her on Make it Colour Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added some Stardust and Gun Metal Stickles to her skirt and coat buttons, White Opal Liquid Pearls to the pom poms on her scarf, and some white glitter to her hat brim and muff.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  It is part of the Enjoy The Snow set in Paulette's store here.  A few Jolee's sparkly snowflake stickers finished my card.

Here is a close-up of Saffron:
