winter somethings

Happy Friday!!
This week the challenge over at stamp something is

Winter Somethings.

I just love to make winter cards, but have to admit I had enough of this cold already. If we would at least get some nice snow to make a snowman with...

For my card I used an image from Crissy Armstrong, available at Wags n Whiskers. I was lucky enough to have been one of the winners for one of crissy's challenges a little while ago and I could choose one of her digis! I think this one is so cute!!

It has been colored with derwent coloursoft and blended with baby oil. I used copic markers for the girl's face.
My papers are from my stash, I know the pink one is basic grey, I believe the other paper is a real oldie from stampin up, but I am not sure.

I used the layered arches punch (martha stewart) for the punched edges and did some sewing, distressing and sponging. My sentiment is from a digistamp set by raindropecho, available at whimsy stamps along with lots of other digital sentiments set and images. To embellish I added some punched snowflakes and ribbon and also stickles glitter.

I combined this card with some other challenges too,
I hope you'll join us this week, as always we have a fabulous sponsor, and this week simon says is back with a fabulous prize for one lucky winner!
