Clean and Simple (CAS) Merry Christmas

The other day Teri over at Delicious Doodles gave away a free colouring page on the Facebook Group.  I needed to make a clean and simple (CAS) Christmas card and I thought that this would be perfect.  The image is now available in the Etsy Store as a whole image.  It's absolutely stunning.  Yes it would take a while to colour in but it would look amazing made into a Christmas picture to come out year after year.

I printed off the image to 13x16cm so that it would be the centrepiece on the card.  I coloured the image in with my Promarkers and highlighted areas with Glossy Accents, gold pearl drops, gold gel pen and of course it needed some sparkle so I used my gold sparkle Graph'it pen.  I chalked the background with a mixture of green and gold coloured chalks.

I just simply finished the card off with a red mount.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
