Anything Goes at Cute Card Thursday - Another Card for Little Hearts Card Drive

Hello friends!
Hope your week is going great so far!
I have had such a busy week and I know I'm ready to sit at the computer to see what lovely creations you all have been making...I've missed visiting! :)

Just swinging by real quick to share a new challenge with you over at
This week is an easy peasy "Anything Goes"...show us what projects you're working on!
We can't wait to see it!

I have decided to do more "Christmas in July" and add another card to the
Card for Little Hearts Card Drive - CLICK HERE for details
I pulled out this adorable fella from MFT called "Beast Friends" as I thought this would be a fun image for the little children to get a smile out of.  :)

I saw the sketch over at My Favorite Things and thought I would just fit my design in with that.
I colored him in with my Copics and used the coordinating dies to cut out him along with the heart above his hand and the scarf that I've attached to him.

I have used the MFT colors Nightshift Blue and  Wild Wisteria for my color palette.
I've created a frame with the MFT Die-namics Stitched Ovals and for the navy colored oval, I also used the MFT Die-namics Snowfall-Horizontal to create the "snow" background.  I've also used the two colors to create the zigzag strip along the side using the MFT Die-namics Stepped Up Chevron.  I just stamped the sentiment from the stamp set in the navy ink over a banner that I cut the fishtails on each end.  I used foam squares to pop up my little beastie guy and the heart.  I took the tiny snowflake another MFT stamp set that I think has retired now.

Here's a closer view of the beastie buddy:
I really like him in the white fur color tones, but I think he would still be cute in any color combination! :)

I hope you've enjoyed my creation today!
Please be sure to stop by the Cute Card Thursday blog to see the inspiration from the rest of the team and please be sure to share your creations with us this week too!

Thanks so much for dropping by!
Have a great day!
