Dottie's World Challenge-Charmed I'm Sure!

This week at Dottie's World the challenge is called "Charmed I'm sure". What a fun challenge! I've never used a charm on my cards before; so this challenge was a lot of fun for me! :o)
My bloggin' friend Kelly sent me some charms a month ago so I finally got the chance to use them!
I also used a charmed download-from the Holly & Madison World Tour collection. Love that collection. :o)
I colored her in with my copics of course.

I used some brand new Basic Grey paper-Eskimo Kisses-OMG! I LOVE this paper! It is so wintery and so very pretty! I also added a Basic Grey flourish bling and Close To My Heart ribbon
Above is a close up of my snowflake charm-I added some jump rings and then attached it to a sparkle brad. I learned this from Bev's blog...so informative and inspirational!
I made the snowflakes with my new snowflake nesties. I airbrushed them while they were still in the dies-that's how the edges stayed white.
I made a mask of the image and then attached it over top of the colored image with temporary adhesive; and then I airbrushed the blue background.
The sentiment is Close To My Heart stamped in Petal ink


Thanks for looking and make sure you check out the Dottie's World Challenge blog to see what the other designer's came up with. :o)

Wow, Nicole- another great card from you. I really like this image you used. It is one collection I don`t have yet. I better go ahead and get it.
And thanks for the information on the background.I finally got myself this airbrush system, and haven`t really tried it out yet. But I have to make a try on this kind of background.
