WWC242 - Marsha's "All About Occasions" Challenge

We're having an "All About Occasions" Challenge this week and I had a terrific idea for a card.  You know how much I love that Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Well, I decided to combine that with one of the adorable images from the New Wonders host set.

Isn't that just the sweetest thing?  I've fussy cut her and placed her so that it appears as if she's drawing the snowflake with a magic frost pen.  My base is the Heavy Whisper White and the next layer is the Night of Navy which I've first embossed using that new Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder.  I've added three snowflakes cut using the dies from the Seasonal Layers.  My sentiment?  Well, I couldn't find anything that struck me as just right for this card and so I wrote my own using my Night of Navy Stampin' Marker.

You can see more of the details in this close-up.  Unfortunately the shimmery effect of the Wink of Stella on her wings doesn't show very well in either photo.  Nor does the gorgeous shine and shimmer I've added to the closest frosty flower using the Shimmery Crystal Effects.  In real life they catch the light and sparkle beautifully.

I love the way she fits into the scene so well, don't you?  I had such fun with this card!

I hope you'll check out the wonderful creations by the Watercooler Artists over at our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.
