Here is the inspiration piece:

I used the teal from the photo as the inspiration for my card. When I was looking through the Paper Pretties Gliding By gallery I saw a GORGEOUS card made by Prettie Girl Frances that I just had to CASE. Check out Frances' card HERE.

Here is my card:
I colored Gliding By Sophia with Copic markers and then added some Sparkly Fluff to her ear muffs and the fluffy thing on her arm. The snowflakes are made out of fast air drying polymer clay. I rolled the clay as flat as I could and let it dry for a while. I then used my Martha Stewart snowflake punch and punched the snowflakes. I let them dry for 24 hours longer and then added the rhinestones. It was my first time working with clay but I thought they turned out pretty good.

If you are just starting at my blog, head on over to Christie's blog to start from the beginning. You definitely won't want to miss any of the stops! If you are following the hop, the next stop after my blog is the blog of Prettie Girl Wendy Bond!

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you all have a terrific day! Be sure to stop back tomorrow for the first Paper Pretties December release preview!
