Polkadoodles Challenge - White with a hint of colour Christmas/Winter

Good Morning and welcome to a new DT post from me. I applied for and was invited to join the Polkadoodles Design Team and today is officially my first post for them! I am so excited to be part of this team. I love the images that Nikky draws and the collections are just full of gorgeous papers, fabulous sentiments and lots of other pretties too, so the value of the collections is just brilliant.

For my first DT project I used the Octavia Frosted Winter Collection for this week's challenge of White with a hint of colour, although mine is a little more than a hint of colour as I used one of the Frosted Lands background images for my sky. I also used another patterned paper, the flowers and a sentiment from the collection. The image I have used is Bear Hugs, which you can buy separately too.

I used some very pale colours on my image and then added some Fluffy Stuff to her hat and boots' trim and some sparkle texture paste for the snow. A simple card, but I love how it came out!
