Welcome to our 9th ISB Challenge! I'm a bit late this time with my posting as the challenge already started on Sunday! Ooooops! Sorry about this but my parents arrived a week ago and we had a looooot to chat - lol- and my hubby and I also went to our dolphin adventure at Discovery Cove on Monday. Finally as we had to postpone it once already. I was soooo excited and we had the most fantastic time! I also have some pictures to share :-) I'll post them tomorrow! Ok back to the challenge now! :-) This time it is my turn and I decided to challenge you all with a color challenge! I picked some frosty winter colores:

Onto my card. I used the Greeting Farm image Miss Anya Snow form the Rain Snow Shine Set.
I thought she is just perfect for these colors. I colored her with my Copics (picture of colors used at the end!) and added polar white Flowersoft to her earmuffs, muff, coat and boots to give a fluffy effect. Than I used one of the new very light Copics (in this case B0000) to draw a soft outline around the image. Using R81 I airbrushed the outer edges for a little contrast. For my background I used glossy paper and embossed it with the Cuttlebug embossing folder snow flakes and added some rhinestones. The wintery flower is made with my Obsession expression flower punch and EK Success snow flake punch. The sentiment is computer generated and the snow flake border is an EK Success punch. The inside is pretty plain just a little distressed around the edges and the two stamps are from Inkadinkado.

The sketch I used for my card is from this weeks Friday Sketchers Challenge and was created by the fabulous Jeanette. I had so much fun working with the sketch! Thanks!

Copic's I used for my card:

Make sure to come back tomorrow I have a fun little Halloween project to share with you I made using one of our super cute new Belles 'n Whistles stamps. It is very quick to make and requires no coloring of the image. For all of you who like to make something quick! ;-)

And it is also Candy Time at my blog...starting tomorrow as well! I have some yummy candy for you....but it is a little twist involved! I won't say anymore ... just come back here tomorrow :-) See ya all tomorrow!

Thanks for taking the time and stopping by today :-)))
