ROP/BnW Challenge - #29 - "Brrrrr - Winter" - Sketch Saturday Week #85

Happy Monday Everyone!
It's time for another
Roses on Paper / Belles 'n Whistles Challenge
The theme this week is to create a "Winter" card.

I know you all are probably tired of the usual
Christmas cards by now, but hey we still have
lots of winter ahead of us.  Let your creative side out.
If you want a Christmas card for next year, go for it.
If you just want a wintery themed card, that's great too.

I chose to go with a more wintery theme.
Even though I vowed to make a Christmas card a week.
So that next year I will have a TON of them!
My problem was, that I ran short this year, and I don't
want that to happen again!

I am also using the sketch from
"Sketch Saturday's Challenge"

Now isn't that a cool sketch?
So I thought I would kill 2 birds with 1 stone.
(no pun intended)
because I wouldn't want to kill these 2 cuties.
This is what I came up with!

I used "Two Turtle Doves" from Belles 'n Whistles,
and gave her some "Cool Wintery" colors.
She's just beautiful in these colors I think!

So there you have it, 1 gorgeous girl for 2 challenges this week.

I hope to see you play along with our lovely Jodi's Winter Challenge.
