Hues of aquamarine n green today ................

I do hope this post isn't to disjointed as I am feeling a little under the weather with a sore throat and a tight chest...........post Christmas blues no doubt lol......

Only one card today which I actually made yesterday evening..........and when I sat down a moment ago to post this my mind went blank.............rofl some would say 'nothing new there then'......and i can't remember the name of the stamp..............please HELP ME lol...............i am a twit i never write anything down...........
Oh well on we go.............hope you are still here lol..............I have used just two colours(apart from hair/face) so I do hope this counts as 'monochromatic'. The backing papers are from Basic Grey 'Hello Luscious' i think and this little lady(whose name escapes me atm) has been coloured in with several shades of Green tones of Prismacolour pencils. So hopefully sets a 'Wintry Scene'. I have also added some Glossy accents to the fur on her cuffs and the odd little bit of ice white stickles. The 'Something New' I have used this time is an Amana Circle die from Dies to Die For. The ribbon and rhinestones are from my stash. The sentiment is from my stash of unlabelled stamps that i have just uncovered. And i have used 'No Floral embellishments' on my card today.

'Snowflakes are Winters Kisses'




I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Cupcake Craft - Born on a Winters Day
Crafty Cardmakers - No Floral embellishments
Hooked on Crafts - Try Something New
Sir Stampalot - Monochromatic
