Ski Girl - MFTWSC100

I was double checking the Christmas cards I still need to make and knew that this little cutie was perfect for friends of ours - they're both skiers!  The sketch is this week's MFTWSC100.  Wow, 100 - hard to believe!

I stamped Ski Girl in Memento Tuxedo black ink and coloured her with copics.

The paper is one of my favourite from last year, BoBunny Snowfall Collection and I paired it with SU Early Espresso.  I paper pieced her little ski suit and added a bit of glitter on her hat.  I really did follow the sketch, although it might be hard to see at first - LOL.  The Simply Scallops border and some SU Baja Breeze pleated ribbon filled in for the piece along the bottom.  I added a chocolate felt snowflake made from the Let It Snowflake die with a button and a hemp cord bow for the bit in the top corner.   I love MFT's felt - they cut like butter in the die-namics!

I didn't add the two dots from the sketch but did add her two skis - so that counts, right?!
