Winter Fun

Good Morning everyone...

I am so pleased to say I have been asked to join the super talented DT at

I am really chuffed about this - I absolutely love The Paper Shelter's gorgeous digi's.
Today, a new challenge starts HERE at The Paper Shelter
and it is 
Winter Sports
Wow, what's not to like about this as a prize bundle!

For my first DT card I have used the cutest Paper Shelter digi - 
Candy Ski
It took me three days to make this card!  two and half of them were spent looking for the candy cane design paper I have used!  I knew it would be perfect for this lovely image and do you think I could lay my hands on it!

I did eventually, it was in the last placed I looked!

Anyway, I cut this cutie out with my Silhouette Portrait, coloured him with Copics and mounted him on a little stepper card with a wonderful Christmas background created from various die cuts.

For the snow I used a new 'thing' I bought before Christmas - Frantage Shaved Ice, and a painted the candy canes and candy wheels with Glossy Accents.

...and here we are, he is so cute and I definitely think he is going to win the downhill race!...
I would like to enter this card for the following challenges
Deep Ocean Challenge - Winter Wonderland

Wow fab card! Great mind hey! I love how you have coloured him and that paper is lovely... Defiantly worth the search! I bought some frantage dodah in gold and silver but have yet to figure out what I'm going to do with it. Yours looks brilliant!! X
