Challenge #95 - The Paper Shelter - "Winter Blues"

Good Morning Crafters, its the start of a New Year for the "A" Team over at The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and already we are on the second Challenge of the year and for this one we want to see lots of "Blues" on your card, its called "Winter Blues" so I guess if youve not had snow yet its possible its on the horizon for a lot of us, so keep your fingers crossed it doesnt stay to long.
But before I go any further two of my Design Team members have decided to step down and they are Marcea immediately and Shirin Lim from the end of this weeks Challenge, its a sad time for us but we understand that they are having problems and need time out to sort things out. But we do have two special ex Design Team members who have offered to do a Guest Designer post and they are Paola and Louise so thank you girls for stepping in at such short notice.
As always our very generous sponsors are Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter and they are offering a wonderful prize of $30.

But as always this is only if you have used one of the products on your card, there is lots to chose from so why dont you go over to their Website and browse for yourself. Even if you dont use one of them they will still give you 3 digi images of your own choice, you carnt ask for better than that can you. Dont forget you are only allowed to enter the Challenge 3 times and one of those must have a TPS product on it, other than that you are free to do your own thing.
And now I want to show you what I have done for this Challenge and here it is.

For my image I have used the "Snow Angel" and printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used the Nestabilitie Labels Die No.8 to cut her out and the Decorative one for the mount. The sentiment is a Whimsey one and Ive used their Snowflake mount for it to.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card and for the first mount I have used a piece of blue card and one of Donna's Bearlymine Winter Papers, on top of this I have used a piece of the web ribbon and along the bottom I have used the Memory box border and corner dies with some white pearlescent card.
The mounted image was then placed in the middle with the sentiment at the bottom on the right. Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will go and visit The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the talented "A" Design Team plus a very special Guest Designer have created for your inspiration, and hopefully you will want to take part in this "Winter Blues" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
