Blue Christmas

Here is this month's progress challenge image for Art By Miran.  This is the third time I've participated and I have to say, so far, this is my favorite image!!  Love her!  You can buy the image here and participate in the progressive challenge here.

I colored the image using chalk, gel pen and flesh tone ink.  I added papers from Bearly-Mine Designs.  I added three different snowflake dies and used an edge punch along the lower layer of paper.  I then used some ribbon and some gems.

Thanks for looking!
