Merry Monday 83

Here is my card for this week's Merry Monday card challenge. I really wanted to use my small scrap of striped paper to make mittens but I couldn't find my Winter Mittens stamp set. Darn! So here's what I did instead using Verve stamps and dies. If I don't find that set I'll order it with my next Verve order, luckily it's an inexpensive set. Thanks for looking!
