Catered Crop - Guest Designer Card

Happy Wednesday everyone! I hope you are having a good week so far! We have some unusually warm weather here today, I have been cleaning the house with the windows open, how fun, when do we ever get to do this in January!! But it will get cold - tomorrow!

Today I am showing you my Guest Designer card for the Catered Crop challenge blog.

Catered Crop
I have just recently discovered the challenge blog and I love the way it works. The challenges run for two weeks, the first week Linda showcases fun things that incorporate the theme from pinterest, and then the second week the design team cards are being showcased. Fun and a little different. Thanks so much Linda for inviting me to guest design for this challenge!!

This 2-week's challenge is "Buttons". Be sure to go check it out to see all the fun ways to use buttons, found on pinterest.

So here is my card. I was given the super cute image "girl with winter coat hat and gloves" by Jellypark digital stamps to use for my card. They have such adorable images, be sure to go check them out!

Photobucket

I colored the image with derwent coloursoft pencils and baby oil and then cut it out. To make the snowy hills I just tore some white card stock and applied glitter. Then adhered the torn paper to some "cuttlebugged" :-) paper using the swiss dots cuttlebug folder.

The designer paper is from Bo Bunny's snowfall collection. I used a sentiment from the set "Winter Letter Seals" by Whimsy Stamps. The snowflakes were cut out using the Layered Snowflakes shapeology die, also from Whimsy Stamps. LinkI embellished with some buttons of course, gingham ribbon and glitter.

And here are a few more challenge I'd like to add this to:
Ok, that should be all for today. I hope you liked my card!
Enjoy the rest of your week!
