Bestie Challenge Reminder

Good morning everyone,

Happy Friday, I hope you are well and haven't caught the horrible lurgy that seems to be doing the rounds at the moment. 

Today I am sharing a GDT card I made for the current challenge at My Besties International Challenge  - 'Use a Tag'.

I coloured up this gorgeous Christmas digi image with Copics and Prisma pencils. I printed her out and cut the shape with a Spellbinders die, Decorative Elements and sprinkled some Frantage around the outside. Tucked behind the image is a paper doily, Cheese Cloth and Magnolia So Wrapped So Lovely die which I've attached some pink Seam Binding, Bakers Twine and Rusty Jingle Bells which have been painted with Gesso. The Fir Cones have also been painted with Gesso and the Roses have had Diamond Dust added to them, I love this effect for Winter cards as the Diamond Dust gives them a lovely frosty look. Links to the materials can be found at the bottom of this post, just click on a picture to be taken directly to the product.The photo doesn't show it up very well, but I've also sprinkled some Diamond Dust on her hat and boots.

Copics List:
Skin: E11, 21, 00, 000, 0000, R21
Hair: E49, 57, 55, 53, 50
Dress, Hat and Boots: C5, 3, 1, 00, R85, 83, 81, RV10
