Christmas Magic

Good morning and "Happy Christmas Eve"!  I had a bit of time last night so I got busy with an image that's just been begging to be colored and made into a card....  Isn't this little gal the cutest?!  I just love the touch of whimsy...and the fact that I got to add a hefty dose of glitter!  I do love me some glitter!

The little gal is colored with pencils and I accented my card with snowflake diecuts and glitter brads (yay, more glitter!).  I used the sketch from Skipping Stones Designs Sketch Challenge's a great sketch that I will be using again!

I also made this card for these challenges:

ABC Christmas Challenge: Zingy Colors

Stampin' Royalty: Winter/Christmas

Image: Nellie Snellen
Paper: SU! Orchid Opulence and Soft Suede, Crate Paper DP
Ink: Sakura Black Gel Pen
Embellies: Doodlebug Glitter (White, Gold), Doodlebug Brads

Thank you for stopping by today...may you have a blessed Christmas and New Year!

Gorgeous! I love that image--she is just too cute. And the non-traditional color scheme is so girly, and of course I always love glitter! Merry Christmas to you and your family Angela!
