Christmas with love

I got this Imaginisce paper at the weeking and was itching to use it. I have followed the sketch on Whiff-of-joy blog created by Heather.
You may notice it has a snowflake or 2 on the card. I am also joining the guys on Cute-card-thursday there theme this week is Snow/snowflakes.
I have used the Imaginisce paper as the inspiration for the colourway of the card. The other papers are of course K&co I bought a box of papers that cost £15.99 for 150 sheets of 12x12 and I am loving them.
I have used the Cuttlebug folders with the one across the middle I have picked out the snowflakes with my versamark pen and chalked it to colour them. With the Snowflakes folder that I used for the longer mat I used a pearl glaze to highligth some snowflakes and glittered the others.
The snowflakes are cuttlebug also. I glittered them and added jewels to give abit more bling.
The image is of course a Whiff of joy stamp, I have replaced the flowers on the trousers with snowflakes to help make it more festive.
The image is coloured with prismas and copics. I used my copics on the hair, skin and to add shading to the jeans after colouring them with my prisma pencils.
