Graph'It Colouring Challenge

Good  morning my lovelies, are you ready for  the weekend? This week seems to have flown by and so its time for a new challenge at Graph'It Colour Challenge and this time we've got a fun Tic Tac Toe challenge so pop over to the challenge blog and find out all the details,while you're there don't forget to check out my teamies fabulous projects and of course check out the fab prize as there are some gorgeous goodies up for grabs!!

For my DT card this week I've used a Sweet Pea Digi called Christmas Bird by Elaine Cox and coloured her with my beloved Graph'It Markers. I love them even more now you can get the brush nibs for them!
Colours used: Hair: 9503, 9505, 5280, 5130, 5125, 5115 and the gorgeous silver Glitter Shake 
Skin: 4180, 4155, 4150, 4115, 5120
Dress and wings: 5130, 5125, 5115 and blender to create the polka dots
Background: Warm greys, also used to add texture to the flocking on the trees for the texture

The line I've chosen is Pink Hair, Fluffy Stuff and polkadots. Its the first time I've ever coloured pink hair so it was a bit scary lol. I've added some sparkly highlights with the gorgeous Graph'It Glitter Shake pen in silver. The fluffy stuff is flocking on the treesand snowflakes and I've given it a bit more texture by adding  a little shading with my Graph'Its. I used the blender pen to create some white polkadots on her dress and wings,I love this technique!! 
 I've diecut the image and edged it with some tiny pompom trim from the Ribbon Girl,added some snowflakes made using Marianne dies,pearls, seambinding,little pins in pink and white and a snowflake charm. The bp is from the Polkadoodles CD  Home For Christmas

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Crimbo Crackers: Pinktober
In the pink: Ribbons and bows
Marianne's Design Divas: winter/Christmas
Through the purple haze: for the girls

Well I'd better go and earn a crust, have a good day and thanks for popping by
