Warm in the Winter - The Paper Shelter

Good morning everyone. If this has scheduled correctly you should be seeing it on Wednesday morning.  Think I will probably starting my day, after breakfast, with coffee and brandy at the pool side bar :) Hope the weather back in the UK isn't being too unkind to you.

My card today is for the latest Paper Shelter challenge 'Charming/Use a charm). I have used the gorgeous 'Warm in the Winter' image. I think she has such a lovely expression. Is she rescuing that poor little cat from the snow?

She is cut using SB labels 1 matted onto decorative labels one cut from gold mirror board. My backing paper is from WOC. Frosty border and corner from Memory Box. Ribbon charm and gems from my stash.

She is coloured as always with Promarkers (I will start adding the colours I used after my hols). I added loads of Glamour dust to the corner and border and to the tree. I also added Flowersoft  polar white to the top of the log.

The inside reflects the front.

I hope you join in with The Paper Shelter challenge this week where the generous Veronica and Pedro offer $30 worth of goodies for the winner if you use a TPS image or 3 digi's of your choice for any other image.  Please check out the other fab cards the DT have created for your inspiration.

Thank you so much for taking the time to check out my blog
