Holly Jolly Christmas

Hi there!  Happy Tuesday!  The week is already zipping along, isn't it?  It's a busy one for me so it seems to be going by even faster!  I am popping in with a quick post to share another Christmas card I made.  I am really trying to have them ready this year and I'm actually not doing too bad so far.   If only I was good at nice, flat CAS cards, I'd be all done for sure!

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Real Red and the patterned paper is from the Basic Grey Aspen Frost collection.  The cute image is Christmas Nutcracker from Saturated Canary.  You can find her in Krista's store here.  I printed her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added glitter to the ball on her leggings and Diamond Stickles to the lace around her collar.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A double-loop taffeta bow, a button and a few dimensional stickers from K & Co. finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by!  If I haven't been by to visit yet, I will be soon!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
