Corrosive Challenge December Sketch

This month we're changing things up a little at The Corrosive Challenge.  We will be holding a design team call all month long! So if you think you might be interested in joining the team set aside a little time to apply.  Our awesome team member KATHY provided a sketch for everyone to play along with, and it is an awesome one!  This one definitely challenged me, but the end result was satisfying.

 I started with an image from Tickled Pink Stamps I have had for a long time now.  Unfortunately I think the company has closed now.

She is colored with Copics with some icicle Stickles added to her coat and boots, I cut her out with an oval die, and flipped the sketch to accomodate the image.  Everything is popped up with foam dots to give it some dimension.
I really wanted the snowflake border (Tim Holtz "Snow Flurries" On the Edge Die) to stick out so I moved it closer to the edge of the card, and also placed on on the inside of the card.
Papers:  Stash and g.c.d. Studios "Sophisticated Frost" 12X12 pad.
Embellies:  K & Co "Snowflakes" sticker medley, Hemptique "Metallic Classic" twine.
I know there is some amazing talent out there, from seeing everyone's entries throughout the year, so I look forward to seeing your design team entries! 
Hoping everyone has a magical, warm, wonderful Holiday Season!
