It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Can you believe that there are only 4 weeks til Christmas?!  I feel like I only just celebrated Halloween, and surprisingly I haven't even got my tree up yet! I decided to combine the 100th Challenge DT entry over at Southern Girls Challenge with my first Christmas Card.  I used an image by Lacy Sunshine called Coco's Holiday Ornament. 

I created this card entirely out of Christmas scraps, which is how I realised that I have very little in the way of Christmas cardstock!!  Sounds like a shopping trip is in order!

Now I created this card using a sketch from Retro Sketches.  I layered lots of patterns and traditional Christmas colours and then finally added my image.  I used my Copics to colour this digi image, then added some silver and clear stickles, perfect pearls, white flocking and gloss.
Don't her earmuffs and boots look snuggly and warm with the flocking added?!  I hope you come and join us for our 100th challenge celebrations!
