Winter Wonderland Anya and DT Call

I came across a new challenge blog (first challenge will be August 15th), and it will be a monthly challenge. You can also combine this challenge with as many other challenges as you like. Lately, I have been doing this, so it's right up my alley. To celebrate the opening of this challenge blog, they are giving away some yummy candy. Click on the picture below to check it out:

Since they are a new challenge blog, they are also looking for two Design Team Members, and I thought I'd give it a try. Here is the sketch provided:

Heere is what I came up with: "Winter Wonderland Anya".

I colored Miss Anya in with my copics, and layered parts of her with dimensionals. I then used Liquid Applique for her "furry" accents, and added stickles to those parts. The light blue paper (Provo Craft) was embossed with the Snow Dots embossing folder which, I was very happy to discover, was a perfect match for the DP I used. I knew I had bought some acetate glitter snowflakes last year, and never used them, so after a bit of digging, I came across them. They were a bit bigger than I had thought, so I just added one of the smaller ones to the center of the organdy bow, and another in the corner diagonal. I punched two snowflakes out of Bashful Blue paper and then covered them in Dazzling Diamonds and added those to the sides of the acetate snowflake. The rhinestones are Tulip, and they are the heat set ones. This is the first time I have used them and I LOVE them. They are sooooo easy to use.

Here is a closer view of the layering.

In the spirit of combining challenges, this card is also for the following challenges:
Club Anya - Club Couture Contest
One Stop Craft Challenge - Christmas in July
Creative Inspirations - Bling
Creative Card Crew - "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun"
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - Monochromatic with white or cream (I'm hoping this qualifies, since I did use skin and hair color and my "violet" color is a blue violet)
Paper Play Challenges - Dimension
Dutch Dare - Use Cutting Dies and/or Punches
The Cuttlebug Spot - Christmas in July
