Tuesday Morning Sketches

Good morning! It's time for another sketch from Melissa over at Tuesday Morning Sketches. Our sponsor this week is Bella Digi Studio, and the image I'm using is called "My New Coat". Isn't she pretty? I decided since she had earmuffs, that I would make a winter card. It was fun to get out the snowflakes and glitter them up!
The Image is colored with Prismas; the coat actually has a slight pattern. It's a bit hard to see in the photo, but I thought it was neat. The image is cut out with a Spellbinder's die, then I applied some very subtle glitter to the coat cuffs, boot cuffs, and earmuffs; I used Martha Stewart's Crystal Fine Glitter. I ended up having to flip the sketch and since I didn't have a lot of room, I embellished it simply with a snowflake using 3 different Spellbinder's dies. The white layers are coated with Barbara Trombley's Art Glitter in "Angel Dust" and the layers are held together with a Making Memories brad.
