Another Challenge card for Sassy Cheryl :o)

Hi there!

It's raining cats and dogs at my house today and the temperature is dropping each day. Didn't get my walk in because of the weather, but the past two days had to wear some mittens to keep my hands warm!

Since I won some wonderful digital images from Sassy Cheryl's I want to enter her challenges when I am able.

This week the challenge is to use Tulle on your card. I had just bought some of this stuff about a week ago but really didn't know too much to do with it. So I tried one of the Lollypop flowers I had heard about.

My tulle shopping spree didn't 'net' ( LOL LOL ) me too many colours, so to match my card I used two colours together to hopefully get the softer tone of blue that was required. White and Turquoise were used alternately.

I'll show you the card front:

Here is a closer picture of my Digi Image: Tiny Tabitha and my flower:

I used some awesome Design Paper from last year of MME called 'I Believe'
The card front uses SU Real Red and the strip of red down the middle is Bazzil Polka dots in red.
I distressed all my papers with Tim Holtz Distress ink called 'Vintage Photo'.
Used Crystal Stickles on each flower layer with a red rhinestone in the middle.

Here is the inside of the card - Left side:

The right hand side:

I coloured Tiny Tabitha with my Copics - brand new red juicy ones that I had trouble controlling!! ( I will list the colours at the end ) I used SU Dazzling Diamonds on her hat and at the bottom of her coat. I used Crystal Lacquer
on her shoes and the ice she is standing on - don't think you can see that :o(
Used a brand new Spellbinder Nestie to me: 'Lacey Squares' - large.
Other than my adventure with the red colours this image was a real joy to colour. I printed her onto Cryogen White card stock with all the little glitter pieces in it and also used a piece on the inside for writing. The lovely bright red ribbon is from SU as well.

Hope you like this little card......

Love, Candy
