First, I have used the fun set "Cute Critters"; it includes outlines, pre-colored images, sentiments and a selection of papers. It isn't a holiday set, but I wanted to show the versatility of the images and created a Christmas card. The turtle is colored with pencils and accented with glitter...I imagine even turtles like to get their glam on! I distressed my papers a bit, added a silver bow, lots of silver brads and a computer generated sentiment.

Next, I have used an image from Austin Owen's "Flower Garden" collection. I like to go clean and simple with Austin's images, so the image will shine. The iris is printed, colored with pencils, accented with some bling, and layered onto a white card base.
