Walking in a Winter Wonderland

With the year quickly coming to a close, it is once again time at Fashionable Stamping Challenge for a new challenge. This time, the challenge is "To Die For."  We want to see your creations that include die cuts and/or punches and, of course, stamping!  For my creation, I chose this beautiful little girl with her teddy bear by Oxford Impressions.  After stamping and trimming her, I water colored her and mounted her to the card base with pop dots.  The snow flake border along the bottom is a die cut by Sissix for Tim Holtz.  The snow flakes are punches from Martha Stewart.  It is difficult to see, but all the snow elements and the little girl glisten with Ranger Stickles and Liquid Pearls.  As a finishing touch, I included tartan plaid twill ribbon.  I sure hope you will stop over to FSC to see what all my design team sisters have dreamed up.  Hoping you will join in as well for a possible prize if your creation is selected as the top winner.  Thanks for dropping by.  Yvonne

This is a great card - it's really individual. I particularly like the little pearl drops and the strips of text.
