Merry Monday......Warm Winter Wishes

Happy Monday Peeps!!

It is our very first Merry Monday Challenge of the New Year!
This week it is a fun color challenge:

I was a little late getting my card loaded up on the design time blog cos I ran in to a bit of a hiccup when making my card.
This actually is not the first card I made with these colors, I had made another one, and when I went to upload it I saw that it was a bit similar to one another girl had made so I thought I should make something different, hence me being a bit behind.
It is all good tho, I like this one too. I pulled out the fun Stampin Up set Wonderful Winterland.
This little skater is so cute, but these images are very small. I tried to color with my aqua painter but could not, I switched to my copics and was able to get a close color match.

The sentiment is from the Stampin Up Winter Memories stamp set.
I added some snowflakes that I die cut from the Northern Flurries Sizzlit strip.
I used pool party and island indigo for the snowflakes and added rhinestones to the center of each.
Be sure and pop over to Lesley's Blog to see what the rest of the design team did with this pretty color combo.
