CHRISTMAS IN BLUE

Hi all, I wanted to share this festive card with you today and enter a few challenges
I have used a Ching-Chou Kuik digi image called Crimson Holly, I coloured her with markers then mounted onto blue card, the papers are a mix from my stash, I added some new crafts goodies as this card was for someone rather special, the new stuff is the laser cut bauble with reindeer and the strings of pearls layered around the image, I also added AB Pearls from Hobby House, flowers and a double blue ribbon and lace bow, finally I added a gold snowflake, sentiment and a bark star and heart.




I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Many thanks for visiting

Happy New Year, Lorraine. This image is so pretty, but your fantastic skills in coloring have rendered it just very magical. You always do such a good job with the hair shading & highlighting, but adding in the sparkle effect in that area, was a big WOW. Looks so stunning with the holly & berries, and I love all the delightful & dimensional embellies you've tucked around the focal image. The pearls add such a lot of glisten as well. TFS & Hugs

Judy Corner said...

Oh now I love this Lorraine! BIG TIME! Beautiful colours, gorgeous design and such lovely attention to detail. Love it! Judy x
