CDAC Sketch Challenge #6

Hi! It's been a while since I've gotten in on some of the challenges on CDAC. I love all the choices for the challenges that we've been given. This "Sketch Challenge" is sponsored by Laurettas Digital Stamps. She has some adorable images to choose from at her store. They are all only $1.50. Amazing! Lauretta has given us a sweet Winter Cardinal image to work with for this challenge. She also has a freebie on her website every Monday! This is my take on the sketch using Lauretta's image. First of all the sketch is below.

This is the front of the card.....The image is on top of a piece of acetate that I used for the window. I "made"some curtains by running a piece of DP from SU through my crimper a couple times and pinching the paper together and tying a narrow ribbon around the pinch. The curtains are placed under the acetate. I used some polkadot paper from my stash for the wallpaper inside the window.I used some "White Mist" 3D paint from "Scribbles"for the snow and sprinkled glitter on top for some sparkle. And of course the little Cardinal had to have a few little sparkly snow flakes on his wings and tail. Below is a close up of this chilly little birdy.The sentiment used is from Designer Digitals. This company has tons of papers and designs to choose from. I'm starting to get quite a collection from them. They also have freebies so you can try them out before you buy. And last of all the inside of the card is below.Products used for this card are as follows. Paper...Real Red and Black and curtains are from Stampin Up. Snowflakes are punched from a Marvy Punch. Sizzix sizzlet used for the scrollwork in the corners. Gems, Ribbon, and DP (other than the curtains) are from my ever growing collection of fun stuff. Thanks for visiting.
