Birthday sale & New release at Bearly Mine Designs

Its Donna's Birthday today over at Bearly Mine Designs and she is having a sale on all of her amazing digi sets and CD's from today until 19th Nov.  She is also celebrating her new release digi set Christmas Dreams, these are stunning!
I've used Donna's digi papers for over a year now and the advantage I get from them is they are unlimited.  I tend to make my inserts when the card is ready to be dispatched somewhere which may be quite soon or a while after I've made it and I never have any trouble looking for a piece of matching paper to go on the inside and finding I've run out, I just print another one off - simples! 

The card I've made today I used one of the papers from the new Christmas Dreams set which has the most beautiful hanging heart but it seemed such a shame to cover it so I've used a sheet as the backing then cut 2 squares out of another sheet and layered these over the top so the heart shows again :D
I've coloured Tilda with promarkers using cool aqua around the edges of the clothes and the blender pen to get the really pale shade with added sparkle on the lace on the clothes, stars and around the edges of the backing and squares and the heart.  She's sat on a shaker I made with a Nellie Snellen die, I've no idea why I made a shaker as I'm usually rubbish at them but the mood struck!

Anyhow I'm entering this into the following challenges:

Totally Tilda - Icy Christmas Tilda
I Love Promarkers - Icy Colours (Entry #2)
Creative Belli - Old, New, Borrowed, Blue (Old - the glitter snow in the shaker which is about 6 years old!  New - The new release DP's, Borrowed - Tilda stamp borrowed from Ms Dolphin, Blue - yep!)
ABC Christmas - Winter Wonderland
A Spoonful of Sugar - Snowflakes
Paper Sundaes - Let it Snow
Crafty Calendar - Winter Snowflakes

Thanks for looking!
