Season's Greetings

Here is a Christmas card that I have made using a Sweet Pea Stamps image by Conie Fong called "Sally and Little Squirrel" and it is available as a digital stamp and a rubber stamp.  I have coloured the image in with Graph'it pens, chalked the background and added Stickles glitter glue to the fur on her clothes/boots and for some added sparkle to the tree/background.  I finally inked around the edge with Tim Holtz's Aged Mahogany distress ink.

The backing papers are from my stash and I have had for a quite a few years now.

I have finished the card off with punched flowers. die-cut holly, ribbon, Nuvo pearl drops (green) and a sentiment from my Creative Crafting World Perfect Companions Christmas CD.
