Sally with Snowball

Hello everybody,

I'm back with my second Christmas card of this year, even though it doesn't have a sentiment on the outside :). I decided to try out an image by an artist who is pretty new to me, Conie Fong. She sells her images both in digi and rubber through Sweet Pea Stamps which was also a first for me. My crafting friend Ria van Son has been using their images for some time now and especially the Conie Fong ones really got me interested. I purchased two digi's and this is the first card I did with the first image:
Isn't that image just adorable? She's called Sally and Snowball and is available as a rubber stamp HERE and as a digi HERE. I've added some snow here and there for an extra wintery card.
Here is a close up of sweet little Sally, as always colored with Copic markers and 3D paper pieced.
Also some snow on the pretty Wild Orchid Crafts flowers (listed below) and have you seen that gorgeous Diamant Heart Embellishment by The Ribbon Girl? Absolutely love that and have been wanting to do a purple card for some time now just to be able to use that gorgeous heart :). The ribbon is also from The Ribbon Girl, you'll find links below.
And the little pieces the image was made of.

The Copic Markers I've used are:
Skin: E11, E00, E000, E0000 and a little bit of R20 for cheeks
Hair: E55, E53, E51, E50
Coat: E57, E55, E53, E51 with W3, W1, W00
Purple parts: V17, V15, V12, W5, W3, W1, W00
Brown parts in panty and gloves: E44, E42, E40
Green: G94, YG17, YG13, YG11

Since the challenge at the Love to Create Challenge blog is Flowers and Stitching I'm entering this card into this weeks challenge.

Hope you like my card! Have a fabulous day everybody!!
