So many digital little time....

This fabulous image is by The Paper Shelter and her name is Warm in the Winter. The topic for this week at The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog is USE A DIGITAL IMAGE AND A SENTIMENT.

My image is colored with Copics and I used WOW! glitter on the snow and her hat pom-pom. The trees are a die by Magnolia and the deer (which are new) are by Impression Obsession. The metal oval by Stampin' Up was Frantage'd. The pearls are by Queen & Co.

As usual, if you enter this challenge and use an image from The Paper Shelter, the prize package is much larger than if you enter and win with a non Paper Shelter image. Since this challenge is for DIGITAL IMAGES AND A SENTIMENT, why not take $3 of your Christmas present money and buy your self a digital image for this challenge. You get an image to color, an imaged already colored, a colored background AND the colored image imposed on the colored background! This is a GREAT week to buy a digital stamp!!!!

The Design Team at The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog had fun this weekend with our Paper Shelter digitals trying to pick just one for this challenge. Please take a look at my teammates' cards and I hope they'll inspire you to buy an image from The Paper Shelter and enter this contest! You can use any digital you wish, but remember...the prize package is $30 gift certificate if you use a Paper Shelter image.
