Fancy Winter Card

Hi everyone :-D

Yesterday I made this Fancy Winter Card

Image on the card is paper pieced. I used a Bugaboo Digi 'Fancy sunbonnet winter 2'. I printed 5 same images, 3 of them on white paper and 2 on design papers (Crafters Companion Bebunni Christmas 6" x 6" Designer Paper Pad). 

After that, I colored parts of image with my colored pencils (shoes, scarf, mittens, pocket), fussy cut parts I needed, colored edges with permanent marker and pieced all elements together. Here are photos of all layers prepared to be pieced together. 

Here are some close up photos of finished image. I hope you can see the layers. :-D

I embellished my card with big red beads I had in my stash for years and paper flowers I got from a friend crafter. I distressed flowers to get a vintage look, as well as the card base and paper layers. I also added some pearl marker on to a card and flowers, to create that snowy look.

Card dimensions are 11,4 cm x 11,4 cm (4 1/2" x 4 1/2").
