Crafty Cardmarkers Challenge 36 First and Last

Hello Everyone,
When I made my first card I thought it was awesome. Years later and I'm glad I never mailed it. It does make you feel good to see your progress. I have been card making for around four years, but became more into it in the last two. I really enjoy working with digital stamps and Coloring in with Copic markers is by far my favorite.
This last image is from Stitchbear stamps called Ice Princess.  Perfect for this time of year, she has a lot of sparkle that isn't captured in the picture. I used Distress Stickles Clear Rock Candy on her dress which gives it an icy shimmer, on her hair ,sentiment, and staff an Iridescent medium.  The Circle paper and the border stripe are all glittered.  The border strip is also a combo of blue and purple.
Please come join use in the fun and show us your work, but don't forget to check out the Design Teams Creations at Crafty Cardmakers  Have Fun, and CRAFT ON!
