Addicted to Stamps - Christmas Card

This week at Addicted to Stamps, we are challenging you to get a head start and create a Christmas Card. To be honest, I had a hard time getting motivated to create this card, as it has been 100+ degrees here, SUPER hot, so it was hard for me to get into the christmas spirit and get started on my inspiration piece. However, once I searched through my stamps, and found this cutie Lili of the Valley stamp, All Wrapped Up, I was on a roll!!!
I paired up this adorable Christmas image with Basic Grey Jovial papers and followed along with this week's sketch at LOTV, which made y card completely fall together perfectly! LOVE it!!!!
I colored my image with copics.
Skin - E00, E000, R21
Hair - E44, E43, E51
Dress and Hat - R29, R27, R24, R22, W5
Shoes and Bows - C7, C5, C3, C1, C00
I added some Prima flowers which I painted with Scarlett and Gold Glimmer Mists and placed a gem in the middle. I also used my brand new MY Favorite things mini rolled roses dynamics to die cut the rolled roses from red cardstock. I LOVE that thing, they are super simple and fun to create, and I love the look of them. I then added some Doohickey die leaves cut from green cardstock to the arrangement.
I hope you will get a start on those Christmas cards and join us this week at Addicted to Stamps for our Christmas card challenge. I cant wait to see what you create!!!
