'tis the season


Hello!  I made this card for From the Heart Stamp's DT tryout.  I love the images and have a couple of stamping friends on the DT, so I thought I'd give it a whirl!

I am using Holly Jolly Christmas (it comes with sentiments too)...love those Birdbrains!  LOL  The image is colored with pencils and I've used a black gel pen on her eyes along with some glittery "eyeshadow"...there's a touch of glitter on the star too.  I wanted to keep the layout simple to keep the focus on the image, so I pieced together a background and tied on some red ribbon.

Image: FTHS Holly Jolly Christmas
Ink: Printer, Sakura Black Gel Pen
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select and Pure Poppy, SU! Bermuda Bay, My Mind's Eye "12 Days of Christmas" DP
Embellies: Art Glitter in "Polar Bear", PTI Pure Poppy Grosgrain Ribbon
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinder's Nestabilities, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

ABC Challenges: V for Very Cute
Christmas Stampin' All Year Long: Cute and Cuddly Christmas
Come and Get It Challenges: Focal Image on the Side of Card/Project
Cute Card Thursday: Hip to be Square
That Craft Place: Things With Wings

Thanks for stopping by...wish me luck!

Wow your card is outstanding. From all the layering, to design and coloring of image. Your eye for detail is splendid and really makes this creation a show stopper. Just love everything about it sweetie. It was great working with you at Clear Dollar Stamps and love the idea that we will be together again over at Doodle Pantry. Yay!! Can't wait to see what else you come up with sweetie. Big Hugs.
