Winter Wonderland!

This week's challenge at The Outlawz Coloring Challenges is a Winter Wonderland!  Our January sponsor at The Outlawz Coloring Challenges is Art by Mi Ran, who is offering our lucky winner three digis of his/her choice from the Art by Mi Ran Etsy shop. 

Here's my card featuring Winter Sofia by Art by miran. 

Winter Sofia was resized in PhotoElements, printed out onto Neenah cardstock with my laser printer, then colored with Copic markers. Some chalk pencil was added to her cheeks to give them a rosy blush. White and Clear Wink Of Stella glitter pens were used to add a glittery touch to the snowflakes and snow circles.

The color palette was chosen to match patterned paper from an old My Mind's Eye 6x6 pad. I also used some lovely aqua-y glitter paper by DCWV, which was die-cut with Squares Nestabilities dies to form a frame. 
White/silvery glitter paper from the same 6x6 DCWV pad was punched with some very old Emaginations snowflakes punches. 

The same aqua-y glitter paper and a sheet another sheet from the same My Mind's Eye pad were die-cut with two sentiment dies from a Just Rite Shapeabilities die set, also by Spellbinders. The sentiment was stamped with Jet Black Archival ink. 

Doodlebug gemstones were added to the sentiment die-cut to finish the card. 

Thanks for visiting today!
