A Wintery Mix....

Hi there, I'm back this fine Monday with a sweet wintery card to share with you.  Today starts a brand new challenge over on the Belles 'n Whistles Challenge Blog.  It's the first challenge of 2012, and our sweet Iris has chosen the theme this week.  I love the "Wintery" look, it's always so much fun to color, and create.  =)

I used "Catch A Flake" from Belles 'n Whistles.  She is so much fun to color, I just love these snowbabies.

I used Copics for coloring as distress ink (vintage photo) for some shading.  The rose buds are from Wild Orchid Crafts, originally white, I changed the color using a water color Stampin' Up marker to slightly shade the edges, then sprayed with a water mist to blend.   I recently saw a card somewhere, and can't think where, but the paper doilies were rolled and tucked behind the image.  I just had to try this, and I am definitely going to do this again.  I really love the way it turned out.

I am also entering this card into these challenges:

Sketch Saturday - #190
7 Kids College Fund - Try something new
My Mums Craft Shop Challenge - One for the Girls
