Winter Wonderland

Thank god it's friday :-) and time for the Friday Sketchers. As yesterday posted.. today is Murielles sketch up. Love, Love the sketch... remember my card "celebrate your inner princess"?? This card was also inspired by this sketch.

On my card for todays challenge i used an other absolute fabulous and versatile Alota Background stamp. You have to check it out, iam certain you come up with many other ideas how to use it. The style is whimsical and is fun to work with. I used on my card lots and lots of glitter (Dazzeling Diamond Dust) with shades of greys and light cold blues (B000) to color the szene in. There are some other great news from Alota.... Helene carries now in her online store several fabulous new items besides new August stamps. Did you see that you can now order EZ mount sheets too and also there are COPIC markers AND Copic glitter pens for sale?


Stamps: Alota and Magnolia ( i recieved Tilda with lantern as a gift from my dear friend Beatrix wow!!!! :-))
Sentiment: is computer generated
DP: Basic Grey and SU CS
Coloring: Copic Sketch
Embellishments: Making Memories
Shawn loved this card too and she bought it from me already weeks ago. Thank you very much Shawn.
