Art by Mi Ran - Guest Designer

Good morning!  Happy Saturday!  Hope your weekend is off to a great start!  Can't believe it's the last weekend before Christmas!  I don't even want to think about what needs to be done before then, so I will just push on with my post for today!  I am here with my second Guest Designer post for the Art by Mi Ran Showcase blog.  I have so enjoyed my GD stint this month! We are still following along with the "snowflakes" theme and here is my card:

 My card base and mats are SU Cherry cobbler and the patterned papers are from the My Minds Eye Vintage Christmas 6x6 pad.  The cute image is Winter Coloring Page, Big-Eyed Girl from Art by Mi Ran.  I colored her with my Copics, then added a bit of glitter to the pom poms and the snowflakes on her scarf.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A couple of Memory Box Snowflake Corner die cuts and a large Cheery Lynn snowflake with a gem finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by!  I will be taking a little break over the next few days to get ready for Christmas and just enjoy a little down time.  I will be back with a few new creations next week!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
