Stampin'B's Challenge #31

Our hostess this week is Faith/Markie's mom. We are to make a Christmas/Holiday card.

For my card I chose to use a digi image by Moe's Digital Pencil which you can find here:
The image is colored with Prisma watercolor pencils and a small artist brush.
I used a River Rock marker to do the shadowing/footprints on the image.
I used a star punch by MS for the top of the main panel, I did it very irregularly to simulate snow falling. I then used some of the snowflake cut outs from the punching and added them to the top of the card. I then added some light blue gems to the snowflakes and on the main panel again to simulate snow falling. The bg is a dark blue cs.
The sentiment is a rub-on by Reminisce.
I really loved it when I noticed that the flash had reflected on one of the gems making it look like the North Star.

I hope you like this one, I'm very pleased with how it turned out.

Hugs always, Nicole
