Winter Sophie - Digistamp Boutique

Good morning everyone  and thank you all for the lovely comments you have left for me.
Today sees the start of a new challenge at Passion for Promarkers 'Shabby in Pink or Blue' and it is sponsored by the Digistamp Boutique.

My card features one of our sponsors images 'Winter Sophie'. Isn't she cute and all wrapped up for winter. Love the little robin following her.  Distressing and shabby isn't something I normally attempt so hope my card fits the challenge. Sorry the photography is a little wonky.

She is cut and mounted onto card with a MS punch around the page border. Matted onto cordinations and all edges are distressed and inked with Tim Holts DI.  The holly border is a Spellbinders as is the poinsettia. The frosty corner is a MB. Mesh, lace and gems from my stash.  The sentiment is from LOTV.

She is coloured of course with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and a little Prisma pencil.  I used the snowflakes from the border to add more glitz and covered them with Glamour Dust. I also added some to the printed snowflakes.  She is standing on Pinflair Ice Crystals.

I decorated the inside to reflect the front.

I hope you will join in with our challenge this week and have a chance to win the great prize.

DigiStamp Boutique are offering 6 digi images to one lucky winner.

I am entering the following challenges :-

Thanks for taking the time to visit me
