Winter Cardigan Shoujo.

Good morning folks.  Hope you enjoyed your Halloween, if you celebrated it I know some do and some don't.

Today we start a new challenge at Creative-Ladybirds Creations.

Challenge 9 is Anything Goes.

I have chosen a digi image from Lemon Shortbread this challenge called Winter Cardigan Shoujo

Once printed I scanned her in to my BSC on the 'direct to cut' and fussy cut her out with a 1mm allowance.  I also cut a mat in red with a 2mm allowance.

 I coloured her in using copics. When I was colouring I hadn't got a clue what I was going to make.  I am suffering with a cold and to be honest was feeling pretty miserable so I chose the colours that cheered me up.

I decided to make a C5 card and matted some red onto my base.  I then cut a white mat on 'Brian' my BSC followed by a square mat of paper which was from my crafty stash.

My flower is Christmas Rose stamp from Chloe Creative Cards using WOW Sparkling Snow embossing powder.  I stamped 2 large and two medium onto red parchment. Once cut I put a valley fold down each leaf.

In the centre is a sparkler, which I made using my glue gun and some glitter.  I splodged some glue onto my glass mat and covered it with white glitter.  If you have watched Jodie Johnson from Tonic Studios on Create and Craft - she came up with this idea.  Definitely cheaper than buying them.

The leaves are ivy leaves from Sue Wilson Creative Expressions.
To finish I used red nuvo pearl drops.
