Happy Monday!! A second week of the Ribbons challenge at The Cheerful Stamp Pad.

The deep freeze has finally given us a bit of a reprieve, last night it was 0 Celsius which is 32 Fahrenheit but it feels so damp, guess we can’t have it all  On the up side the sun was shining on Sunday which really helps.
Time for the second week of the Use some Ribbon challenge at The Cheerful Stamp Pad, the sponsor is the Sweet stamp shop. This week I used a bugaboo image, it was a Friday freebie and I just wanted to play with it and get a jump start on my Christmas/Winter cards, it could be used for a winter birthday too. I have been a hold-out for alcohol markers but last week found some Spectrum Noir marker at a reasonable price and this image was coloured with the blues, the face was done with flesh toned copic markers (had them forever)
I used a spica glitter pen  on the wings and skates, liquid pearls on the at and bottom of the coat, cut the ovals with the Nellie Snellen oval dies. The ribbon is from Stampin’up and the snowflake ribbon brad from my stash. The snowflurries brought to you courtesy of an EK mini snowflake punch.
I’m doing really good with finishing the insides of the cards just waiting to put a sentiment inside as I really like to pick the sentiment for the recipient of the card.
