Who says trees can't be pink

I've recently started discovering digi images and knew what I wanted to do with this Tiddly Inks one (Skater Wryn) straight away when I saw it.  She's coloured in ProMarkers and cut out with a Spellbinders die.  I've sketched and coloured a reflection of her skate underneath in the ice.  I've also added some grey and glitter around the lower half to create an ice look.

The sketch I've used is a Creative Inspirations one.  Papers are from LOTV/Raspberry Road Designs Mr & Mrs and LOTV/NitWits Solids Always and Forever and Bonnets and Bowties.

I used a Marianne Designs die to cut the tress out and did two of them pink, yes you can see right that's pink trees :)  The sentiment is from Christmas Grungy Messages (shhh.... I went shopping the other day when Lili of the Valley had their late opening and there were three for two offers on).  I've added a splash of pink to the sentiment as well :)  The final touch are some white self adhesive gems from Hobby Craft.

I think you can see crafting in pink makes me happy!  Hope you love her, I'm not quite sure who I'm going to give her to yet!
