Card For A Couple of Challenges

Hi there!  Happy Sunday!  Hope you've had a great weekend!  I finally managed to get a little organized and to finish up a few cards I had in the works.  I'm here to share one that I made for two challenges - Guylou's Inimitability Winter Wonderland Color Challenge (blue, gray and white) and the Copic Challenge #35 on Suzanne's Dean's Color Me Creative Classroom site which was to color with "frosty" cold colors.

Here is the inspiration colors for Guylou's Challenge:

And here is the inspiration photo for the CMC Challenge:

Here is my card for the two challenges:

I started with a card base of SU Baja Breeze and layered with patterned paper from the Bo Bunny Snowfall 6 x 6 pad.  My fun image is Serena on Skis from Guylou's Inimitability.  You can find her in Guylou's store here.  I printed her on Cryogen White and colored her with Copics (BG57, BG53, BG11, BG000, B91, C9, C7, C5, C3, C1, E11, E00, E000).  I added some white glitter to the trim on her hat, her ski suit, and the snow.  The skiing sentiment is from Create With TLC.  Paulette generously shared it as a freebie at the end of last year.  I thought it would work perfectly with Serena!  I colored it similarly to the main image.  I punched  a few snowflakes from white glitter paper and popped them up on pop-dots.  A shimmery sheer white bow finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by and having a peek.  I'll be back soon to share some other projects I've been working on.  Have a great night!
