Frosty Day Emma


Happy Friday!! Since Im feeling a little better today I decided to try to put together a card from the images I've colored up. I found the Diedrich Dare challenge this week and decided to play along with the sketch. I also played along with this weeks All that Scraps challenge to make a Christmas card but I went with the non traditional colors in this retired SU frosty day dp. I think the last time I used this dp I colored the hair orange too!LOL!! I love red/orange hair! Dontcha wish you could go to the salon and tell them okay I want yr04 first then yr07& yr09 then finish it off with a little e09!LOL!! Okay so maybe I need to back off the muscle relaxors a little!LOL!! Okay so back to the card of course the images are colored using copics and I added a little MS snow glitter to the tree but its hard to see in the pic. I also sponged bashful blue lightly around the edges of the nestie. Ive seen lots of Magnolia cards where they have an image in the background and the girl/boy popped up in front of it so I gave it a try with this card for a something a little different. What do you think!? Have a great weekend!! Hubby is off tomorrow so we plan to put up the tree, make some cocoa, and watch Christmas movies (and hopefully squeeze in some stamping time!).
