Cute Card Thursday - Green and Gray


Happy Thursday!

At Cute Card Thursday this week,our challenge is Green and Gray.



Paper:  O Christmas Tree (My Mind's Eye)
Ink: Memento, Copics
 Accessories: Felt snowflakes, glitter, Corner Flower #2 (Sizzix), lace



I cheated a bit on the background and made it red. However, the coloring of the image was done primarily in greens and grays (cool gray for the outfit and warm gray for the outline of the snow and the stones). This cute Gingerbread House is available at Robin's Fetish.


I added a flourish to the chimney for the "smoke" effect.


There is a lot of glitter on this card. Unfortunately, it does not photograph well. It is really sparkly in person. 
I used the sketch from the I 2 Stamp Challenge.


Thanks for stopping by today!
