Creative Inspiration challenge # - Kickstand Miss anya

Well hello folks it is Wednesday so it is time for my DT card over at Creative Inspirations. This week we would like you all to make a Kickstand Card. Well if you are like me I hadnt heard of these then it is a card with the bottom of the front missing and the bottom of the image is the bottom of the front of the card. Hopefully the picture of my card will explain it better. Any theme, any colour so free range.
I have decided to use my Miss Anya from the second set just love these stamps. Papers are from my stash from last year. Image has been coloured using promarkers. Fibres from my stash and a few embellishments foam snow flakes and a small pot snowman.

Hope you will join us all as we had such a fab time checking out all the fab cards you made last week.
We have had some sad new Cheryl has had to give up her place due to work commitments but we wish her well and hope she will join in our challenges and some good new Tanya our guest DT has kindly agreed to join us. Also last week the prize was a place as our guest designer for August. So pop over and see who won and this weeks prize.
I have decided to enter this in the colour create challenge as their theme colour is Blue and white and i think there is enough blue and white for this to count.
