Winter Blues

This is my card for the following challenges
1. Passion for ProMarkers. The theme was 'Winter Blues'. Therefore I chose a winter designs and kept to a blue colour theme.
2. A Gem of a Challenge. This was sketch challenge
3. Pear Tree Designs. For this challenge you had to include 'Best Wishes' on your card.

I began by stamping the image with a Memento ink pad. I stamped the image twice as I added the hat, boots and scarf with foam pads to add dimension to the card. The stamp is 'Winter Milly' by Pink Gem Designs. She was coloured in with ProMarkers.I used Nestabilities to cut out the image and the frame. To finish Milly I added Polar White Flowersoft for snow and various coloured Stickles. I also added white flock to the top of the boots.

The snowflakes design on dark blue panel was stamped with white Craft Stampin' Up ink pad.

I cut two large panels of blue card for the background panels. The snowflakes were cut using my 'Christmas Cheer' Cricut cartridge. These were added to the card with a Quickie Glue pen. The patterned strip with punched using Martha Stewart deep Flower punch. Across the blue centre strip I added a piece of navy ribbon and small white dots. The dots were added using a white Sakura pen.

To finish I added a greeting oval by Craftwork Cards and diamond Stickles top the snowflakes.
