Christmas Kiss

Hi there!  Happy Monday!  Hope you had a good weekend and your week is off to a great start!  My thoughts are with all who were impacted by the terrible storms yesterday.   What crazy weather for November!  Luckily, it was just windy and rainy here.  I'm so grateful for that.  Anyway, I am here with a quick post to share another Christmas card I made to add to my stash.  It won't be long before we have to start sending these out!

Here is my card:

I made an scallop circle easel card.  The base and mats are green cardstock from my stash and the patterned paper is from the October Afternoon Holiday Style 8x8 pad.  The festive image is Christmas Kiss by Mo Manning for Penny Black.  I stamped her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added Silver Stickles to the ornament top and her barrette, Lime Green Stickles to her slippers and Red Stickles to the heart in her hair.  I added Ice White Pearl Pen accents to her headband and Glossy Accents to the holly berries.   The sentiment is a 3-D sticker from my stash.  I added a couple more ornament stickers to the easel base, but you can't see them here.  A bright red satin bow finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the image:

Thanks for stopping by!  I have a couple of things to do, then I'll be popping by to visit your blogs.
