Ticket to be Adorable-ccc challenge

This week it is my turn to set the challenge at CCC so. . . It is cold here in Minnesota, last week we saw -25*F and it is a whole 10*F today as I type this up. So let's Heat it up this week on CCC and think about warmer weather! Use heat embossing, warm colors, hot beverages, or hotter places to heat it up this week! back to sponsor us this week again, with a warm looking Henry the Mouse, lounging in the summer sun! Please make sure to visit Whiff of Joy to see all there adorable new stamps and fabby new die cuts!
You got a sneakpeak yesterday with my post on my neice. The tag is actually a magnet that can come off the card. I had fun with this weeks challenge, especially because I didn't expect to get to make a card for my new neice quiet yet. Hehe.

I started by heat embossing Willow with Toddler (Whiff of Joy Stamp by Elizabeth Bell). Colored with an assortment of products. The papers are from the new paperpacket "Sweetheart" from CTMH. It is availible Feb. 1st. I die cut circles and various hears as well as Tim Holtz's tickets. I tacked down and then heat embossed ultra thick embossing powder over the top several layers thick. While it was still hot I pressed in heart buttons. The tag is a clear one from TH and glossy accented papers to it and stamped faith on the top with stayzon ink. Then I inked up my new ticket stamps from CTMH for the corner tags.
I added bitty sparkles and a touch of ribbon. Loved how it turned out!
Hope you can join us this week at CCC.
