Bundled up Cooper!

Hi again, my second post today, the weather has been so bad its perfect for staying indoors and crafting. A couple of weeks ago i was lucky enough to win this stamp from Paper Pretties, he's called 'Bundled up Cooper and I love him, hes sooooo cute! I've made 2 cards with him today, the first is following this weeks challenge sketch at Paper Pretties

Cooper and the background are coloured with promarkers and some sakura clear stardust for highlights, The bp is from Dovecraft. I added a circle of white card glittered with judkins prisma glitter, some die cut snowflakes (glittered with the same glitter) and some white organza ribbon with a silver edge. The border is vellum, punched with a MS punch and stamped with Tim Holtz snowflakes and white brilliance ink. To finish off I added a couple of snowflake brads and a little bow from narrow white organza ribbon. I'm also entering this one in the following challenges
For Fun: Use Metal (snowflake brads)
If the shoe fits : Feeling blue
The Crafty Pad: At least one circle and 2 ribbons
One Stitch at a time: winter wonderland

I've used my promarkers again for this card and added some pale aqua card punched with a MS punch and some white/silver ribbon. To finish off I added more die cut and glittered snowflakes. I've used this weeks sketch from Card Positioning Systems for the layout. I'm also entering this card in this weeks challenge from Paper Sundaes where the theme is 'Let it Snow'. The sentiment that comes with Cooper was perfect for this theme. I just stamped it on the cardstock, coloured over it with promarkers and added some white dots with a white gel pen. I'm also entering this card in this weeks challenge over at My Partner in Crafting Crime where the theme is 'Marker Madness'

Thanks for calling by, hope you are having a good week and keeping warm. Its freezing here in the UK at the minute so its a good job Cooper is 'Bundled up' today lol
