Snowy with Bells

There is a new Magnolia Challenge blog here. The first challenge is to use pink and yellow - one of my favorite color combination. They seem like spring colors but I want to do Christmas cards, hence my adventure to come up with a Christmas color using pink and yellow. I think I succeeded but you be the judge.


I used snowy with bells from last year. I thought it was so cute and finally got it.  She is colored with copics on cryogen. Love that cardstock for coloring with copics. The trim around Snowy's little jacket is Raspberry Fizz Ultra fine Flower Soft. The snow at the bottom is polar flower soft. The bells have diamond glaze on them. The dp is from basic grey. All the edges are roughed up and sewn. The swirls are from sizzix. The snowflakes are sequins from Hero Arts. I don't remember where the heart rhinestones came from. There is small glittery ribbon tied near the bottom as well as the big silk bow at the top. Hope you enjoy.
