Delightful Challenges

Good Morning everyone!  It's time for a new release over at Digital Delights by Louby Loo and since it's Thursday, it's time for a new challenge, too.  This week's challenge is....

LET IT SNOW

I was given this sweet little angel, Donita Angel, to work with and I have to admit - Snow and Angels don't mix for me.  So needless to say, this was a challenge for me.  But it finally came together with some fun red snowflake paper and a great sketch by Karen Giron at Sweet Sunday Sketch.


I am really loving my new border dies that I got with what I had left on a gift certificate my sister gave me for my birthday.  Seems that dies are popping up everywhere nowadays. 

Anyway, I also pulled out my Cricut and SCAL software to create the doilie that Donita is sitting on.  It's glazed with glitter, my picture didn't capture that too well.


Supplies:
Image: Donita Angel
Card stock: Neenah Classic Crest, Handsome Hunter
Paper: unk Christmas paper
Copics: B000 E00 E02 E37 G28 R27 R29 Y11 YR20 YR23
Tools: Cuttlebug, Lacey Eyelet border dies (SNSS), Cricut, SCAL, SVG doilie
Embellishments: ribbon (Offray), diamond glitter glue (JoAnns)

So head on over to Delightful Challenges to see a fantastic line up and join us in the fun!
