Wildflower Beauty

I had a birthday card to make for a very special little gal who is turning six.  She loves the Disney movie Frozen and I think her favourite character is Elsa.  I hunted around for an image that might work and then stumbled across someone's blog who had used the Wildflower Beauty image from Sami Stamps and I thought it worked perfectly!  Then my next quest was to find some pretty, icy and blue paper and I found that at Bearly Mine with the Winter Swirls Collection.  The card is fairly simple and I managed to put it together in a very short time so I hope she likes it.

 Copic Colours:
Hair - E43, E42, E40, E33, E000
Dress - B23, B21, B00, B000
Skin - E11, E01, E00, E000
Supplies:
Image - Sami Stamps Wildflower Beauty
Sentiment - Stampin Up Circle of Friendship
Paper - Bearly Mine Winter Swirls digi paper
Dies - Impression Obsession Snowflake Die Set, Simon Says Stamp Simple Numbers
Misc - Shabby Blue Frantage, Blue Stickles, Stardust Stickles
Challenges:
Loves Rubber Stamps - Anything Goes
Through The Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
Sister Act - Anything Goes

Oh my goodness, Marilyn! This is a GORGEOUS card. Her hair is spot on! Wowsers. Elsa is every little girl's favorite this year. As someone who works with little kids and has a few granddaughters of that age, I can assure you this card will bring squeals of delight. Perfect job of taking paper, snowflakes and the image, and creating a Frozen feel! As far as your worry about her liking it . . . Let It Go! Hugs, Cathy xx
