Challenge #185 - "Winter Blues" - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Crafters, I do hope that this scheduled post appears, the one I did for the 1st last week completely disappeared, not sure why but anyway Im going to try and schedule this one to.
Anyway I hope that you are looking forward to our first Challenge over on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot as it does seem quite awhile since we had a Challenge and this first one is all about using the colour "Blue" so we want to see your card will all shades of it please.
As always our sponsors for the Challenge are Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30

To spend on their website, but you will only win this if you have used on of their products on your card and that could be either a image, paper or even a printable, but even if you havent they will still give you 3 digi images of your own choice, so you really cannot loose can you? Please do give their website The Paper Shelter a browse and see for yourself what stunning products they have to offer you and at such reasonable prices.
And now for my own card I hope you like the result.

This little lady is called "Winter Princess" and you will find her here, I have printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I have used a rectangle die from Nestabilities to cut her our and the mount is cut out with a Wild Rose Snowflake die. The sentiment is one from my stash and this was stamped onto white card and also mounted onto a piece of blue card.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of blue card and the paper I have used is also from the "Winter Princess" set, its the background paper and you will find it here. I have then placed my mounted image towards the center and the sentiment at the bottom on the right. To finish of I have used two (which I had in my stash) punched out snowflakes that have been dipped in glitter and placed at the top on the left hand side, and the final flourish are the two white pearls in the middle of them.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will pay a visit to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to take part in our "Winter Blues" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
