A new Gem of a challenge - my sketch!

Hello again , another post from me today! For my creative cottage post please scroll down.
Today is 8th which means another challenge over at a gem of a challenge this month and this time it was my turn to host the sketch (I hope you like it!) My optional extra this month is to use distressing on your cards.
Janet of course made it look pretty for me, I can't claim ownership for all the fancy stuff lol!

I have used the stunning Chloe with penguin for my card from the pink gem store, she is just so cute. My papers are far far hill freebie download and Pink petticoat. I have distressed and sparkled everything of course. My lace is wild orchids and my snowflakes have been cut with marianne d's then distressed with tea dye and sparkled with stardust stickles. My pearls are from stash. My gorgeous circle sentiment is from pink gem designs also.
I have masked my image so that i could create a distress ink backround for her from tea dye and forest moss.
I have coloured her with prisma pencils and sparkled all her white edges of hat, coat etc. I think both of them are adorable lol!

I also want to enter this into Craft your passions anything goes, The crazy challenges All I want for xmas is you, Simon says stamp and show holiday greetings, Paper playtime snowflakes, Spoonfull of sugars xmas card, Stamp somethings xmassy colours, Sew many challenges snowflakes, crafty Anns xmas and 2 sisters sparkly xmas.
