Baby Bud Designs Challenge #2

     This is Snowdrop and she is a Baby Bud Design.  There's a challenge going on over at the Baby Bud Designs blog and they want you to use a BB digi, scallops, buttons, and bling.
     I used three different paper collections on this card, but the Christmas colors just went together so well.
     The image is colored with Copics.  Yep!  This is the one I mentioned yesterday.  I only used five markers, but hey . . . you've got to start somewhere.  :)  All that beautiful blending and shading requires more markers than I have at the moment.
     This was a fun card to make.  Hope you like it.
