Blue Blue Winter Sports

I have combined two challenges for this card:
Winter Wonderland - Winter Sports

Christmas Challenges {with sketches} - sketch and twist

The twist for this challenge was to use blue, white and snowflakes.  The sketch and the colour scheme gave me the inspiration to complete my Winter Wonderland card as I had only got as far as selecting an image and then had creative block!




I have used co-ordinating blue papers from Trimgym.  These worked really well together and were in the blue and white colour scheme.  The image is from Eiglassing and is called Winter Twins.  I kept the colour scheme almost completely blue for the image as well - even to the blue lips!  I resisted putting a blue tinge to their skin though!!

The blue ribbon is overlaid over the lace - these are two separate pieces.  The sentiment has been stamped using Distress Ink - tumbled glass.

I have punched some snowflakes from various scrap pack pieces and glittered them up with some Crystallina Kindy Glitz.  To finish the card, I have added some little pearls.
