I love to used again my Hero Arts Collection this time. See this Japanese Doll soo soo cute right? I choose this time the colors blue for her.

First I stamped the white paper with this lovely border stamp from W Plus 9. I really love this pattern :)

Then I choose Blue paper and stamped with tiny stamp from the same set:

I colored the Japanese Doll with Akashiya SAI watercolor marker. And I also gave a bit snow made by white paper and a bit grey ink on it under the girl and also using Cloud Stencil from  my lovely friend Billie A. in USA, I sponged the cloud. Here is the finished card:

The tiny snowflakes Die cutting is from my lovely friend Kitty, many thanks Kitty I still keep all and will used it for cards with winter theme :)
