Hollybobs Skater, Polkadoodles

I have a fun card I want to share with all you crafty peeps today.  I used the Hollybobs Skater  from Polkadoodles.  She is available as a single digi, a clear stamp, or you can get her in the complete Festive Hollybobs collection  HERE.  Each and everyone of the characters in this collection are so so cute and there are so many fun elements to go with them and fabulous papers. My printer was acting up this week so I had to use some papers I already had on hand.  I will be making more projects in the following weeks with some of the other characters.

My papers are from MME, the trees are fussy cut from the same paper as the background peice.  The snowflakes are Martha Stewart punches and I use Neenah shimmer paper for them.  The "ribbon" is wired and from my stash and I love it.  It's thin enough to add a fun element without taking away from the rest of the project and I love that I can bend and form it. The bling and such is from my stash.  The sentiment is from Inky Impressions that I had printed for something else but it worked in a pinch.  The snowflakes around her are a MME clear stamp from the Winter Wonderland set.

Here is a closer look at the image before I added all the stamping and snow around her...

I colored her using my Graph'it Markers.

skin: 4125, 4155, 4180, 3120/ 4135
