Anya Ink #5

First of all I would like to thank the lovely ladies at Anya Ink for selecting me in their top 3, again! that makes 3 times for 4 challenges, Marcia and Tracey, are you sure you are not confusing me with someone else? I am thrilled and surprised to have been chosen, thank you again :)
This weeks challenge is paper tole, so lots and lots of colouring and cutting, phew! This card actually came together quite quickly for me, I used papers from Summertime Designs, I am in love with the snowflake DP, I paper pieced the dress and when I was layering up the images I shaped the fringe, skirt and sleeves so they curved slightly and had a rounded shape (you can see this in the last photo). I punched and glittered 3 snowflakes, adding two to the corner of the card and the third to her crown (to make her into a snow princess, hehehe) I also glittered her crown wand and the under skirt on her dress. The second photo shows the layers of the image.




This is completely off topic but did you see google today, it's the 40th anniversary of Sesame Street and the google image today was too cute.
