Colour Create DT card using Friday Sketchers Sketch!


Hello again blogland!  This is my card for this fortnight's challenge at Colour Create.  And this is the photo inspiration chosen by the uber-talented Mina:

Isn't this just gorgeous!!  Mina has chosen the colours, pink, green and cream with the optional extra of frosting - yummy or what!
I don't think anyone could fail to recognise this gorgeous Holly fairy digi image from Mo Manning- the first image I ever bought from Mo's Digital - love it especially as my DD is called Holly.  I used my Promarkers to colour her and followed the layout given by Friday Sketchers, sketch # 122, this week- another fab sketch from them!  My papers are Webster's again and the flower is one I made myself from paper scraps.

This pic shows my 'frosting which was done  by embossing with a sparkly powder.  Her petticoats are also stickled to within an inch of their lives although it doesn't show up so much.  I love the little lustre beads which mirror the snow globe she's holding. ( And the little house in the globe is in Mina's photo!!)

Finally I added some Twinklets under her feet to make it look like crunchy snow. 
 Our challenge this week is being sponsored by Michelle's Scrapbooking - there are some lovely goodies on the site, so hope you can play along with us!!  Do have a look at the cards made by fab teamies on Colour Create too - they're as awesome as ever ( and their cards, hehe!!)  Check on over there too to see who was the lucky winner of last fortnight's challenge!
