Tra-La-La

Time for another challenge at All Dressed Up and the theme is Ribbons & Lace.  Easy Peasy, right?  Should have been but my card was finished, pic taken and watermark added when I realized there`s something missing... and it`s the theme.  Duh!... no ribbon or lace on it anywhere so I quickly lifted some layers and added a simple little bow knot, then redid the pic and watermark.  So silly to have forgotten that but it was a quick enough fix!  There`s a few new images in the Etsy shop today and Tra La La is one of them.  Lots of gorgeousness by the design team on the challenge blog too so check that out.
For my card, I coloured the image with Copics and then added various snowflake diecuts dipped in that wonderful Frantage, plus I sprinkled a little bit of it around the image.  A little of the white flower soft on the bunny`s ear muffs and then some Diamond Stickles on the hat and all the scarves.  Stickles and Frantage... my faves!  The sentiment is from the Purple Onion Mini Holiday set.
Challenges:
Jingle Belles - Christmas Traditions (singing Christmas carols)
One Crazy Stamper - November Christmas
Winter Wonderland - Cute Christmas
4 Crafty Chicks - Snowflakes
ABC Christmas - W for Winter Wishes

MEGA cute Marilyn! Love this image. Well, actually, love ALL Wendy's images, but you know that. Coloured beautifully and framed to perfection with that frantage stuff adding a whole other dimension. As for going right off track, well, that's the kind of thing I'm dead good at! LOL xxx

I keep hearing a little voice in my head singing "Tra La La" _ I can hear it so plainly so I know it must come from somewhere that I love. Your card is precious with those sweet little critters. Your snowflakes are gorgeous as is your use of Frantage!
