MuchaInfluence Winter - The Paper Shelter

Good morning everyone. I am here today with a card for The Paper Shelter DT.  I loved colouring this image 'MuchaInfluence Winter' from The Paper Shelter. She has such a sweet expression.
The original pre coloured image is green but I thought winter is blue so I changed it. I took the backing paper into My Craft Studio and made it blue. Apologies to Veronica if this changes it too much. Apologies as this is a pic heavy post.

Our challenge this week is 'Easily does it with a Christmas theme'. So make an easel card. These really are hard to photograph. 

I took the backing and made it blue and then added her to the centre and coloured her to match with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and a touch of Prisma pencils. I added Bazzill basics and silver mirror board as mounts, rounding the corners with an xcut corner cutter.

I added loads of Glamour Dust around the oval and flowersoft to the snow. The snowflakes are from a MS punch around the page.

Flowers from WOC, leaves, gems and ribbon from my stash. Loads of Stardust stickles added to the flowers.Just wish I could get the sparkle to show on my pics :(

Merry Christmas ribbon added the sentiment.

It's an 8 x 8 card as I felt I didn't want to squish the beautiful image.

I am entering the following challenges:-

Now don't forget the prize this week as always is $30 to spend in the store if you use a TPS image or 3 digi's of your choice with any other image.

I hope you hop over to the blog to see the fabulous creations the DT have made for your inspiration.

Thank you all for taking the time to look at my card.
