Poppi's Christmas Cocoa

Good morning!  I liked the current Bugaboo sketch, so I combined it with some other challenges to make this's fun to see how many challenges you can work into 1 card!  I also thought it was time to do a traditional red/green Christmas card!

The image is colored with pencils and Poppi's Santa hat is accented with glitter.  I embellished the card with some holly diecuts and pewter brads.  After I was done, I started to rethink the brads...maybe I should have used black....  What do you think?

Ink: Printer, Sakura Black Gel Pen

I think it's perfectly adorable the way it is! Black brads would look good too - you have all the right elements to make it look good :) I think the pewter adds to the sparkle. I love that little penguin!
