Cure for Winter Blues; Cheerio!

Inspired by the Cure for winter blues challenge at Moxie Fab World (- is there a better way than to cuddle up under a -blue ! - blanket/quilt with a good book and some hot chocolate???), the "use 3 different papers challenge at Simon Says Stamp, the bingo challenge at Penny Black all sorts; white, blue turqoise and the Quilt inspired challenge at Create I made this card:

The patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye and stamps from Waltzing Mouse Stamps. Gem brad from American Crafts and pearls from Queen and co.

It's also two layer card for Crazy for challenges it's a Blue quilt card for  Crafty Catz B-challenge

Hope you don't have any winter time blues to cure, hugs, Karin
