Winter cold...

 I have had this image for awhile called "Mum's Quilted Coat" - been looking for the time to play with it.  I chose my background papers and CS and then chose Copic colors that would coordinatet.  I printed out two images and after coloring, I cut out the sleeve and head from one set to sculpt and mount 3-D on the base copy.  The edges were inked with three different colors of Tim Holtz' Distress Inks and then stamped very lightly with the swirl inked in the lightest color - "Milled Lavender".  Half pearls were added among the swirls for texture & to mimic snow.

This card should be eligible for the following

and always, always, make what amuses you!
