It's 'Something Fun' for Cute Card Thursday!

Hello friends!
How is your year going so far?  I hope you are doing well and ready to have some FUN! :)
Today I wanted to share a new challenge with you over at
CUTE CARD THURSDAY
This week the challenge is "Something Fun" on your creation!
(as always please interpret this challenge how you see it.)  We can't wait to see your makes!

For my card, I have used a cute image provided by our sponsor for this challenge:
This cute little ice skater is called Ice Skating Princess by Aliciabel.
I have colored her in with my Copic markers and added a few other fun details you can see below.

For the card, I have made a 5" square top folding card.  I wanted the colors to be girly looking, but also have a wintry feel.  I found a color challenge that I thought would be a good one for this card.

  The snowflakes stamped in the background as well as the white embossed sentiment on the banner came from Penguins Winter Adventure clear stamp set by Whimsy Stamps. The plaid background papers came from the February 2017 SSS card kit.  It seemed to match up with all of the colors on my card, so I went with it!  I have also used my 3D embossing folder with the mint green card stock panel in the background.

I cut out the image with MFT scallop stitched rectangle die and then mounted it over a piece of pink card stock and popped that up with foam tape over my 3D embossed background.  I've also used the MFT Stylish Snowflakes dies to cut some snowflakes from some silver sparkle card stock and attached them to my image panel.  I then added some aqua rhinestones to the centers of all of the snowflakes including the one I've attached to the white bow along the side.

Here's a closer look at my coloring:
You can see in the photo here how shinny her eyes are as my lighting has captured the glossy accents that I've covered her eyes with.  You can also see the shimmer coming from her skirt that I've covered with my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen as well as the shimmer on her ice skate blades and her ear muffs and shirt cuffs.  I've used a silver gel pen to color the blades and dotted the ear muffs and shirt cuff with.  I've used a white gel pen for her cheeks and for a highlight in her stockings.

I do hope that you will join us for our challenge this week and please be sure to stop by the challenge blog to see the other beautiful creations from the rest of the design team!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!

Seriously cute and fun card! The colours of the challenge look gorgeous on your card. Fab colouring and I love the little details you've added with the gel pens especially the spots on her ear muffs and cuffs. The glittery snowflakes look so lovely with the rhinestones. The perfect finishing touch is the Glossy Accents on her eyes. Love it! Debra x

A totally cute image, and so expertly colored too. The color choices were excellent, in that the scheme is both girly AND icy in feel. Love the way you've shaded that swirly skirt. Enjoyed the closeup of the eyes and the shimmery silver of the snowflakes just add even more frostiness. Love the 3D embossing in the background mat as well. Great work on this delightful card! (wonderful highlights in the hair treatment too). TFS & Hugs
