The Paper Shelter DT - Winters Blues

Morning Peeps!! Can't believe we're half way through the week already, what's happened? Somebody has stolen my time lol. Anyway best I get onto today's card and it's for The Paper Shelter and this week our challenge is "Winter Blues". I'm so loving the winter blues and kraft card at the moment so this card was a pleasure to make.
I've used one of our relatively new images called "Mucha Influence" and she is available to purchase from the webstore here. The dps I have used are by Nitwits yet again, backed onto kraft cardstock. I decided to bring out the old sewing machine and stitched around the image. The ribbon and pearls are from my stash and the flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Coloured in, as usual, with my trusted Copic markers. Colours used are B24, B23, B21, E 37, E35, E33, B000 and C1. I will be entering my card into the following challenges :
Allsorts - Free and easy
