Snuggle Up Izzy

I had a bit of a Christmas card frenzy going on today as I finish work next week so need lots of cards to give out to my work colleagues. Not sure if I have enough or not yet! This first card uses the cute Snuggle Up Izzy from Di's Digi Downloads and is for Digi Designs Christmas Challenge.

It is also for Avenue 613's Challenge #101 Anything Goes (I missed out something from column 3 for the bingo card bit -not sure my white card on the snowflakes count as enough for solid colour card), Papertake Weekly's Paper Play Challenge, Inky Chicks Challenge #44 Winter Wonderland, Creative Inspirations Challenge #298 to use the optional sketch below,  Kraftin' Kimmie's Wonderful Wednesday Challenge and for The Outlawz Saturday Paper A La Mode Challenge to use 1 image, 2 patterned papers and 3 buttons.

And here's the sketch from Creative Inspirations


And here's my attempt on it. I wanted to do something different for the sky rather than my usual copic coloured one, so pulled out my spritzer tool and sprayed a few bits of blue marker over it for a faint sky and then did the same on the tree with a green marker so it looked a bit like the tree was covered in snow. Not sure if it really worked or not though...
