Snow Goddess - Purple and Pom Poms

My daughter is helping me with a major sort out of my room... something that I have been putting off for ages but it needs doing urgently now... anyway, I'm coming across loads of half-finished cards and coloured up images! is it just me who does this? please say no!! LOL 

I found this little lady all coloured-up and ready to go... :-) and saw the  Winter Wonderland - 'Photo Inspiration' Challenge with the colours purple and white... and the Sketch on Sparkle Creations (see below) and I thought... Hmmmm... I should really finish this card.... so managed to squeeze in a little Crafting and here it is... quite a simple design but love the colours and sparkle...

Sparkle Creations - Challenge 46

The image is by Michelle Perkett and is called 'Snow Goddess' - isn't she gorgeous? you might remember I used her on a Hexagonal Card a while back... but she looks very different in these contempary colours...

The gorgeous Papers are Cosmo Cricket 'Mitten Weather' and the scrummy Pom Pom Trim was a gift from lovely Alessandra - thank you hun!!

Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and gems are from stash.

I used Promarkers, Flexmarkers and touch of Prisma Pencils... added some Viva Pearl Pen for snow (think it was Silver) ... and some Star Dust Stickles on the Fur Trims... I added the sentiment before printing.

I would like to enter the following Challenges:-

Crafty Sentiments Designs - 'Anything Goes' ends 15th October 2012
Crafts & Me  - Challenge 105 - 'Anything Goes' ends 16th October 2012

Hope you like it...

Wasn't Downton exciting... real nail biting stuff... I won't give away the plot in case you haven't watched it yet... but the storylines are wonderful this series... and really enjoyed Strictly but I'm a bit sad Johnny Ball has left... I would have liked to see him stay in just a little bit longer...

Thank you for all your lovely comments... I really do appreciate you taking the time out to visit my blog!
Take Care
Love and Hugs
