Winter Blues with a bit of Sparkle

Morning all.  I was so smug about being ahead with this week's challenge cards that I almost missed the fact that today is the 15th.  And, if it's the 15th, it must mean a new challenge over at Sparkles Monthly.  I had a total 'Argh' moment when I realised I hadn't done a card and I hadn't even thought of an idea. So, rather than try and come up with something clever, I had a quick scan through the images I have printed out.  When I print a digistamp I always fill up my page with other images and pop them in a basket for when I just want something to colour.  I have to admit that the image I chose has been in there so long I have no idea whose image it is.  I can remember that it was one of the first digistamps I downloaded years ago. I'm not sure that the blog I got it from would even exist now.  If it does and if you read this please comment below and I will happily amend the post and give you credit.

Anyway, as I was in a rush I coloured her up and just mounted her on a card front that I had glued a cover die to.  I kept the background pure white and just added icy blue gems.  I need to add a sentiment but I'm not sure what yet so, at the moment, it's blank.

For a total rush job I'm actually quite pleased with it.  The fur on her coat has been coated in Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen so it adds to the bit of glamour.

Please pop over and join in the fun.  You've got a whole month to enter so you don't have to rush it like I did.

Thanks for reading.
