The Beautiful Skier - The Paper Shelter, TPS DT

Good morning everyone. Oh my have I been a bad blogger this week but today sees the start of a week off work and I will get caught up. New tumble drier coming this afternoon so will also get caught up with my washing :)
Today also sees the start of a new challenge at The Paper Shelter where the theme is 'Anything Goes' so we will be delighted to see anything you want to enter.
I have used the appropriately named 'Beautiful Skier' and kept it fairly simple.

She is cut using one of the new SB Opulent Ovals mounted on a grand oval. The flower is also a SB poinsettia and I used a holly corner. The papers I used are freebies from a magazine but can't remember which one.

She is coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Prisma pencils and I added distress ink to her background.

I added a dovecraft brad to the centre of the flower. The inside does reflect the front.

I am entering the following challenges :-

I hope you will join us with this weeks challenge and will pop over and look at the cards the DT have made for your inspiration.  Our  prize is as usual $30 worth of products if you use a Paper Shelter image or 3 digi's of your choice with any other image.

Hope your week is going well and you aren't being too affected by the weather. Thanks for looking
