Winter inspiration

Hello, everyone! Today is my last post as a guest designer for La-la Land Crafts and I want to thank Irina for her generosity and all of the girls for being so nice. Today we are being inspired by the theme "Winter" and I have used one of the older images but she is so pretty I had just had to pick her.

This is Christmas Lantern Marci and I have gone for a vintage feel to her. She does have a little sparkle on the edges of her collar and pockets but I don't think it shows well in the photo. I have frantaged the poinsettia with rose frantage and have used some silver glass glitter in the center.  My list of supplies and copics are below.

Oh Amanda, I love her! I think your cards are even more BEAUTIFUL in person. Thanks so much for the pens. You are always too good to me my friend. I am truly in love with this card however. I wish you would do a tutorial on how you make the flower look like it does and how in the world do you get the texture on the corner in the bottom right side? Is that embossing powder or what. I just love the way it looks and feels. You are so artistic. I'm not sure I can send you one of my cards now. Lol... thank you, thank you. I really love these new pens. Hugs Lisa

Oh, and I forgot to ask.... where do you get those gorgeous glittered pearls? Do you make those and if so how. I love the wintery effect they lend to your card. See ful of questions, but I swear I sat and looked at your pretty card for at least ten minutes it's just that pretty. Them I made Jerry and both the M&Ms look at each little detail as well. lol hugs
