Ooh I so love this image, Itis so good for teenage cards, It's from Mo and I think she's called Danny's presents. This card is for my friend Rita's Granndaughter. I have coloured her with pro markers and chalked around the edge and then added some glamour dust and martha stewart snow, and then I picked my DP from the colour I did her coat, so a silver theme. I also glamour dusted her coat cuffs and collar. The snowflake DP is from pink petticoat and the let it snow I have had ages. I have added some zig zag papermania ribbon to the bottom and added a pink petticoat sentiment. Then some silver ribbon to the left side. I cut the snowflakes with a die and my bigshot with foam and added pearls, a white button and a love charm. The other sentiment is computer generated.
This stamp is from the Penny Black new 2010 range, It's an order from my friend Jo for her Daughter Holly.I have used some merry christmas DP which I have had for well over 2 years so I thought it was about time I used it lol. I have mounted this onto silver card and attached some fairy lights. I then coloured my image with pro markers in lilac and reds and the presents in green and red, I have then chalked around the image in blue and added glamour dust and martha stewart snow glitter. I cut the snowflake out in foam and added a pearl to the centre, then some fluffy purple ribbon. The sentiment strip is from Pink petticoat and the circle sentiment from cuddly buddly, the top sentiment is computer generated.
