I'll Have a BLUE Christmas...

Yep - It is time again for Sassy Studio Designs Dare To Be Sassy Thursday. This week we are challenging you to make a Blue Christmas Card.  Now this was FUN because I LOVE blue and white and blue and silver cards!!!!

So... I used a blue and silver paper, and a blue cardstock.  With the Blue cardstock I dry embossed it and then clear embossed over it. I added stickles to it to give it some sparkle. I also used sliver heat embossing on the edges of the blue cardstock. For the silver oval, I dry embossed it and then wet embossed it with the silver Zing. This gave it a glittery mirrory look. The snowflakes got the same treatment.

I used the All Wrapped Up image, and colored her with the following colors. YR000, 00, E11. I added a little bit of R20 to her cheeks. Her hair is E31, 33, 34, 37, 39 with a bit of E49 in the deeper shadows. Her ribbon and shoes are B32, 35, 37 and 39.

I am also entering this into the following challenges:
