All Dressed Up ..A little Skater

Wow what a turn of advents..Now I am designing for All Dressed Up .. Another UK designer not too far from me she is in  in Nottingham.. I have loved these cute girls for ages and now I have a good excuse to play with them regular ..YIPEE !!.. My first card is a lovely Christmas or even a nice winter Birthday card if you know someone into skating..I have used my CC embossing folder for the background as the dots look like snowballs, This is then mounted onto Centura pearl in red, this has a beautiful sheen on it .The image is coloured using Faber-Castelle Polychromos Pencils, to which I have added a background of various pale chalks to break down the stark white and give a contrast from the card itself.After adding a touch of glitter I then mounted it firstly onto multi coloured silver mirror board and finished with more of the red Centura Pearl.The small holly leaves are cut from a Sue Wilson die set they are very fiddly as all nearly singular ,but they look lovely on the card..The tiny Poinsettia's, I think were either Britania Dies or Signiture, but more inclined to think Britania,I got them off Ebay .The Merry Christmas die is a Marianne die which also has Seasons Greatings with it too , Thanks for looking :)x
