Whimsy~~Leap of Joy

I won this FABULOUS Whimsy digi~~by Crissy Armstrong called "Leap of Joy" so had to create :)   Fun Fun Fun!!!  THANKS DEAR CRISSY~~you truly brightened my world!!!!  MWAH!!!!
Used the Simon Says sketch below
I have used alot of new products and techniques on this card!! I will explain as the photos continue~~So please hang in there :D
The Amazing New digi image at Whimsy by Crissy Armstrong~~Leap of Joy!!
You can purchase it precolored or line drawings~~your choice:)
Colored with Copics of course!! Added stickles to bow and bells. Liquid applique to tail, ear, on horns and nose.  Diamond glaze to eye and hooves. Polar white FS to blanket edge :) 
Check out these snowflakes!!!  Brown are a Sizzix die and the centers are homemade with Hearty Modeling Clay--a SU serene snowflake stamp-- then spritzed with Tsukineko Gold shimmer spritz and left to dry.  Once dry-- cut to desired shape~~what do you think??
Found this Here~~Go check it out you won't regret it :)
Now what do you think of this texture??  Dreamweaver Embossing paste, mica powders and this petals stencil all at Susana's Store!! I used translucent paste and brushed in mica powders while stencil still in place~~ QUITE STUNNING!!!!!
Just think of all the beautiful backgrounds and fun you can have with this~~OOOOoooo Yah!!!
By the way the doves are a MS punch--inked edges and glistened with Moonlight Smooch.
The inside of card:  Used EKSuccess border punch.  Inked edges of message area and stamped SU sentiment with TH broken china distress ink.
