Frosty and beautiful - Colour Create Challenge 59-Grey, Green and White + Friday Sketchers challenge 130

Good morning everyone I hope your all well and keeping toasty warm...how lucky are all of you who live in warm places and could you please send us just a teeny bit of heat please, I spent a lovely night with my wonderful Daughter and her boyfriend last night making curtains for them and they cooked for me, I love it when someone cooks for me and thank goodness my Daughter takes after Phil as I'm hardly the domestic goddess type mind I do make a mean sandwich or order out fantastically, dont get me wrong I can cook I just choose not to lol...a few people asked yesterday about my wish list for Christmas....er....hhhhhmmmmmm to tell you the honest truth I really haven't thought about it but will and report back...right now onto my card for today which is for our new challenge at Colour Create which is a stunning combo of Grey, Green and white with the added option of using either acetate or silver, mine is really hard to see but I have two acetate snowflakes behind the image and sentiment, I love this combo so much there's something them together I really love...I used this beautiful Michelle Perkett Studio digi from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, shes called Snow Goddess isn't she just gorgeous and amazing to colour, I used Distress inks, I love Michelle Perketts images dont you...this Basicgrey paper, I think its from the Figgy Pudding range, which is just a perfect match for the challenge don't you think, I finished with some fantastic holly edged ribbon I bought at the NEC (you sick of hearing that yet lol), a grey satin ribbon and a sentiment with rose and some of the holly from the ribbon to finish...the sketch is from Friday Sketchers challenge, fab isn't it, have a wonderful day everyone...oh and by the way don't forget to enter my candy if you haven't already

Wow, wow, wow - how beautiful is that?! So gorgeous - your coloring of her is stunning - so much depth to her from your shading. And you rocked that color combo. I wouldn't have thought to put them together, but your card looks so lovely. And I love her fur - what is that? flower soft or stickles? or glitter? lol. oh and you can have a LOT of heat from here - I'm sitting here at 9 p.m. sweating in this 80 degree heat. argh.
