Iced In!!! Challenge day

We are Iced in Again today! Although I am looking forward to school starting up again, I am enjoying the time at home with my girls!

Ever since my dear friend Anne showed me the blog challenges I am hooked---- And a bit overwhelmed. It seems that at any given moment there are 900 Million challenges to choose from. I managed to combine 5 in this card- and I really Don't see how people fit in more. I did this weeks Sketch from Pricilla's, The flowers from basic Grey, P10 #5 using punches, and DYSU #4 Patterned paper.

The main image came from my friend, It is by treehouse. Lots of paisley and flowers. The ink was all Pallette. I used the Gaugin, Lautrec, and Morisot families. All The paper is Basic Grey, Phoebe line. I put Bazzill flowers behind the main image and massively popped it up with cardboard. Stamped the flowers and colored with copics. I guess I could include this on the copic challenge too. :-P
Finished with a punched panel and brads.
I had fun making this. May go do more..... Take care and stay warm out there!!!

Some of the contests that I may have entered are:
