Christmas Nutcracker- DT Card for Fashionista Challenge #9

Hi Everyone!
Before I announce our new challenge at Fashionista Challenge,
I would like to welcome my new followers and also
thank all of you for leaving me lovely comments.
Your comments are my inspirations!

The theme for Fashionista Challenge #9 is Blue Christmas.
We would like to see Christmas creations using blue as the MAIN color.
Our sponsor is Saturated Canary.

For my DT card, I chose SC Christmas Nutcracker digi as the main image.
Although I have seen many beautiful cards made with SC images,
I have never colored one till now.
I must say Christa's drawings are simply gorgeous and very detailed
which I find very helpful when it comes to coloring.

The image is colored with Copic markers. 
Not sure why the dress looks streaky in the photo.
I added tiny pearls and stamped little snow flakes around the images.
I also added some glitters on the dress and box.

The LO is from CLP's November challenge.
I have rotated the left and right sides of the LO for my card.

DPs used here are Stampin'Up and Magnolia.
Dies are from Spellbinder, Tim Holtz, Memory Box and Magnolia.
Sentiment and punches are from Stampin'Up.

Thanks so much for stopping by. 
I would love it if you can join in the challenge and 
check out my teamies gorgeous creations at Fashionista Challenge.
