Bellariffic Friday - Buttons or Bows

It's Bellariffic Friday and this week the challenge was "buttons or bows".  I had so many new images to choose from as my Stampingbella order arrived last week....yay!  I decided on the adorable Valerie with Pup.  I love his little ears and tail sticking out from the snow - let's hope we don't get that much this year!
I stamped the image onto Bella's Bestest paper with Black Licorice Hybrid ink and coloured it with copics.  I kept the layout pretty simple because Valerie is so sweet with her face all wrapped up :)

The sponging was done with some Antique Linen distress ink.  And, as no Christmas card is complete without some sparkle, I used my Wink of Stella pen on her hat and mittens and I added some stickles for the snow, then made some tiny dots to imitate tiny snowflakes. 

For the button and bow challenge, I did both.  The button has a loopy bow behind and then I added a little Fishtail Flag behind it. 
Here are the copics I used.


Be sure to check out the rest of the BellaBabes and the Sistah's cards for this week on Blogabella.  Next week's Bellariffic Friday challenge is another sketch #22.
