Guest Designer - Art by Mi Ran Blog

Good morning!  Happy Saturday!  Hope your weekend is off to a great start!  Actually I am still sleeping right now (I hope), but I am here with a card and some exciting news!  First the news!  I was invited to be a Guest Designer for the Art by Mi Ran Showcase blog for the month of December!  Woo hoo!  I am thrilled and honored, of course!  Today, I get to share my first project for the month.  I hope you like it!

I created a multi-layered snowflake-shaped card using my Cameo.  The patterned paper is from one of my Christmas mat stacks.  I love the swirling snow and subtle foil elements on it.  The beautiful image is Princess of Snowflakes from Art by Mi Ran.  I colored her with my Copics then added lots of Star Dust and Icicle Stickles to make the image really sparkle! I also added some regular glitter to her collar. I cut out the image with a Spellbinders Lacey Ovals die.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  I added two Memory Box Snowflake Corner die cuts and some pretty white lace to finish my card.
Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by!  I'll be back in a bit with my Sketch Saturday DT project.  Coincidentally, we are sponsored by Art by Mi Ran, so I will have more ABM inspiration for you later.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Love to Create #144 (get in shape; shaped card)
