Beautiful Winter Lady

     I was lucky enough to be a challenge winner last week at a challenge which was sponsored by Lemon Shortbread and I could hardly wait to get this image colored up!  It's new to me (and maybe new in the store) but it was one of the images I chose as my prize.  Doesn't she make a fantastic Winter lady?

     I colored with ProMarkers, die cut with a die from Cottage Cutz, and put the image onto an embossed background.  I added the hand cut sentiment, a tiny peacock feather and a hand-tied bow and called it finished.  I wanted to keep it as CAS as possible because I wanted that lovely image to be showcased, not covered up.  :-D
