Monochrome Christmas

Good morning, peeps!  Did you think I'd left Blogland?  I confess that it must have seemed like it but my absence has simply been due to a holiday and a badly sprained ankle - the latter has meant that I left the apartment yesterday (with the aid of crutches) only for the second timein in two weeks.  Anyhoo, I'm back with a cutie card for the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge.  This week we are challenged to make a card that is monochromatic with sparkle and here is my effort:

Apologies for the rather dull photo but the weather here has been so gloomy lately that it's hard to get something decent.

As you can see, I chose blues and white for my monochromatic scheme, mainly because I found this little cutie already coloured in the box and thought that I shouldn't leave her lying there feeling neglected any longer.  It also reminds me how my colouring style has changed over the months.  She was coloured with Copics of unknown numbers and I did deepen the shading somewhat with Prisma Cool Gray 90%.  I think that the image is one of the older Elizabeth Bell ones but I didn't label her so I can't be sure.  The DPs are from a Dovecraft pack that I've had for at least 2 years and the shapes are cut with Nesties, the snowflakes with a Martha Stewart punch and blinged with Glamour Dust.  The lace is from The Ribbon Girl.

Thank you for looking today and I do hope you like it.  I won't be absent so long this time!
