Rusty Pickle DT Card

Hi everyone in blog land. Here is the first card I have made using one of the fantastic images from Rusty Pickles Digital Delights. As you know I have been given the honour of joining the design team for this new venture so I just had to get creative. I have tried something totally new with this card - I have used faux polar white flower soft. I am sorry I can't remember where I saw this but I thought it was a great idea and gave it a go. You use polystyrene - you know the stuff that fills up boxes to make sure nothing breaks - flaked it up using my scissors - warning it goes everywhere!! - and then glued it to my picture. What do you think?
Here is a closer picture to help show it better.

The rest of Lazy day snowman has been crystal glittered and coloured with water colour pencils. I layered him on some paper from the Jingle Jangles CD Rom from Polka Doodles. Then layered again onto blue miri card. The other background sheet is from one of my most neglected CD roms - Seasons Greetings by Artylicious. What I hear you say how could I not use it, I know I am ashamed to admit it because I absolutely love the papers. Anyway I have got round to it eventually!!!
The ribbon across the middle is from Papermania and I have used two triangles of my favourite cardstock - Core'dinations So Mod -duly distressed.
I have used the sketch from Midnight Madness shown below.

You know me there have to be a few other challenges I am going in for and here they are :-

Cupcake Craft Challenge - Snow much fun,

Papertake Weekly - Use a digi stamp and add sparkle,

Digital Tuesday - Holiday Wishes,

Creative Inspirations - New/Neglected (new digi, neglected CD rom)

Crafty Creations - Snow,

Cute Card Thursday - Glitter me silly and

Charisma Cardz - Merry and bright.

Well there you have it!! I think with all these challenges plenty of people will now be seeing these gorgeous digis.

Please let me know what you think,
