Vintage Snow Girl

Well I am officially back to school!  I am back in the routine and I have to say, I was totally ready to get back to my normal schedule. 
It is still pretty cold and snowy here, so I was inspired to make this card using an image from Crafty Secrets. It is from the Winter Wishes set. I colored this cute gal in with Copic Markers and added a bit of flock to her cuff and hat.  I also added glossy accents and glitter to the snowball. 
I used various Spellbinder's dies to matte my image.  I also used some music paper I printed off the Crafty Secret's Christmas Digital CD. For a fun accent piece I used a felt snowflake, ribbon, pink string, a flower, and a jinglebell, and adhered it to the side of the image.  I had two snowflakes in white and added a bit of glitter to both of them using glossy accents.  I tucked them behind the blue matte on the top and bottom. 
Lots of layers in this card.....but I love the dimension and the softness the felt and flocking bring to the image. 
I just had to share a quick picture of my little pup, Skippers, right after getting groomed.  I just think he is the smartest, cutest dog ever! ;)
Have a great day my friends!

Being an animal person, I'll address him first, LOL. He's very precious. I have a Great Pyrenees, so much bigger. Your card is gorgeous. Maybe if I start now, I can make equivalant cards in time for next Christmas.
