I used this adorable Elisabeth Bell image and fussy cut around her. I've used Bridal white glitter by Sprinkle n Sparkle on the fur of her coat and a dab of Stickles Star Dust on her bow and berries on her hat. While adding the glitter, a tiny drop of glue dripped and when I tried to wipe it off, I gave my poor little girl a scar on her cheek. It's always so upsetting when this happens and it's the last step of the card you've made. Sigh. She's sledding down a hill made with an edge die by Spellbinders.
The shaker circle by Impression Obsession is filled with Stampendous purple Fragments and assorted beads and I stamped inside with two little Stamps by Judith--one is a star and the other is 3 dots. I used a Spellbinders scallop edge die to back the shaker circle and embellished it with purple pearls.
My paper is by Doodlebug Frosty Friends pad and this has been my favorite winter pad this year and I've used numerous pages from it and even purchased a second pad at an after Christmas sale for next year! My purple bow was the finishing touch and, of course, I used my awesome bow maker by Craft-Dee BowZ. I don't know how I would have managed this bow without it. I went ahead and left the tails of the ribbon long and wrapped them around my card front before attaching it to my heaviest white card base. I did it like this because I didn't want the 'tails' to hang off the bottom of this card. I love how the double bow came out and it reminds me of a bow tie. ;)

Lovely card and I love purples and teals. Such a gorgeous colour combo! Thanks for playing along with us at Love to Scrap! Challenge Blog. Hugs, JulieReplyDelete
I love the purples you've done this in, and yes, the background paper is awesome. The girl on the sled is colored up perfectly (as always!) and what a great idea to make her a hill to slide down. Great shaker medallion addition and a perfect bow. This has got to win a challenge or two or three somewhere in your listings!! Good Luck to you . . . and I'd be most happy to send you some "real" winter, if I could !!!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous shaker card Gail, fab bow. I love the colours you have used. Thank you for sharing your work with all of us at Crafty Boots Challenges.ReplyDelete
Beautiful card! Loving all the different shades of purple! Thanks for joining us this week at Loves Rubberstamps! RebeccaReplyDelete
I love shaker cards! And I love winter cards! Although winter is NOT my favourite season - I dislike it very much actually! Too cold for me! And too snowy! I am definitely living in the wrong place for someone who dislikes winter! But back to your card... I wouldn't have noticed her cheek if you had not mentioned it and even so, I don't think it is noticeable at all, but yes, I hate when something like this happens after all that colouring, which you've done beautifully!ReplyDelete
Oh, and the bow looks FABULOUS!ReplyDelete
Lovely Gail, pretty papers and the shaker circle is a great idea, the image is perfectly coloured and I love your lush bow, fabulous!ReplyDelete

Gorgeous card, thanks for joining us at Inspiration Destination and good luck. Wendy DT xReplyDelete
Even with the scar on her cheek, she's adorable! Almost made me want it to stay winter a little bit longer... until I felt the cold draft from the opened door. Ha! Thanks for sharing and joining us at Inspiration Destination. Hope to see you again and good luck!ReplyDelete
What a super fun card! Love the image and the shaker. Thanks for joining the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge this week!ReplyDelete
This is such a clever creation! There are so many great details and fun things to look at. I really like your incorporation of the shaker circle and how it mimics snow, but a gorgeous purple bead version of snow! I also really love the image you chose and how happy she looks sledding down her hill. The snow slope is perfect and the addition of the little elements like glitter and the ribbon give it a great feeling of sophistication. You did an amazing job and I'm so glad you shared this with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!ReplyDelete
What a fun card indeed! Love the purple and the sweet little girl on the card with the sparkly touches!ReplyDelete
Fits perfectly with our little boy/girl challenge!

FABULOUS card! I LOVE LOVE LOVE everything about it! From your coloring, to the purple snowflake paper, to the shaker part! Thanks for joining us this week at QKR Stampede Challenge "Circles"!ReplyDelete
P.S. I had to really zoom in to see the "scar" on her cheek. However, it's very frustrating to be done and then have an "accident"!
Such a lovely card!ReplyDelete

Gail I love your card....I wondered if you have ever used the Stamping Up glue eraser? I use mine all the time when I have a sticky spot I want to get rid of. Not sure if it would resolve this problem but maybe worth a try in the future. LOL! I am always doing something like that! Anyway, I do love the card and the scar looks like a highlight to me! I love the curvy die cut and definitely will have to invest in one. Have a great week-end!ReplyDelete
