It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas!

At Scrapbook Blessings Club our November's Monthly Challenge is "Anything Goes: using green, red, and white colors".  I was totally thrilled when I found out the sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps because I'm a big fan!

I made two cards to showcase their images.

For the first card I used this adorable image called Ornaments Bear and actually created an "ornament" to display it in.  I colored it with watercolor pencils, and Sakura Stardust Gelly Roll pens.  The card is embossed using a snowflake embossing folder, and I added a few snowflakes on the "ornament".

The second card I made using Fairy Christmas .  I think she is just beautiful and love that her wings are made of Holly.  I also colored her with watercolor pencils, and Sakura Stardust Gelly Roll pens.  The "fur" on her hat was accented with Stickles "Frosted Lace".  The added Holly leaves are from Paper Sweeties Holly Days Bundle stamps and dies set.  The card was embossed with an embossing folder and the raised part was painted over with Smooch pearlized top coat.
