I love the first week of the month.
release new images the
first Thursday of the month...

this week is...
You're a Gem. 

I am using 
Winter Night Snowie Lola,
Topsy Winter Papers,
Winter Galore Accessory Set. 

Here is my card...

Inside the card

I will say when I first saw this image,
I loved it.
Then I got to looking at it
and panic set in.
Its a night scene.
Easy enough use grey.
But there are stars and snowflakes.
How do you color the sky grey,
yet have the snowflakes and stars.
Why Stickles of course!!

I colored the image with
Copic Markers....
B05, BV13, C5, 100, E000, E25, E31,
FRV1, R20, R29, Y13, Y17, YG09, YG17  
and my white gel pen for accents. 

The corners of the patterned paper
have Cranberry Rhinestones.

The middle of the bows have
red flatback pearls.

The stars are silver Stickles.

The snowflakes ended up as blops of Crystal Stickles.

The garland on the trees is Golden Rod Stickles.
I prefer Golden Rod over Gold cause it has a richer color to it.

I opted to finish off  the inside of the card with
matching paper and a tree.

Thanks for stopping by.
