The Stamping Boutique DT Card

Hi All. Hope you're having a nice relaxing Sunday afternoon. We're off to dinner in a bit for Mum's birthday last week - we couldn't go then cos my Dad was working so thought we'd go today instead. But, before I go, I thought I'd share with you a card I've made using The Stamping Boutique's Kendra - I absolutely adore this image, so perfect for girlie cards and I do love the way Tracey's drawn a frame around the main image, I think it really sets it off. Here's my card:

I coloured the image with promarkers and added chalk to the background (which is something that I often forget I've got - and it's works well, especially when you want to add a bit of subtle colour into the background which I sometimes feel looks too 'white' IYKWIM!), I cut the image and the scalloped frame out using my nesties and cuttlebug, then I put the card together with my Echo Park papers and added a Craftwork Cards sentiment, candy and some layered up punched snowflakes - and that was about it!!
I actually followed the sketch at Allsorts, but missed the deadline for the challenge, but I'm going to enter my card at Totally Papercrafts challenge #43 - Snow and Snowflakes and Beary Scraps Beary Sweet challenge #14 - Anything Goes!
OK - well I'd better go and get ready (I'm always getting in trouble for being late! Last time I got in the car, my dad - the joker! - had the song 'so tired, tired of waiting, tired of waiting for you-oo-oo' playing - d'you know the one I mean!?!?) ha, ha! Have a good day, lovelies!
