Christmas Card

Not quite a commissioned card - don't tell on me - but when I was flicking through my digital image printed off and came across Karen's Doodles image called Bigsby's Christmas Wish, I couldn't help but colouring him in and making into a card.
I coloured my image with Promarkers but then did the background with shimmery chalks for some extra sparkle.  The backing papers are from a freebie book from a magazine I bought whilst on holiday.  I have embellished the card with a sentiment I was given by my sister, lace, card candy, Crafty Ann's Digi Store poinsettias with some gold Stickles glitter glue for the centres, buttons and inside the buttons is some tinsel ribbon which was such a so-and-so to go through the holes that if it didn't give some more sparkle it wouldn't have been included!!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Creatalicious Challenge - Anything goes
Inspire me Friday - Anything goes
Crafting Monthly - Christmas sparkle

Ribbon Girl - Christmas craft project - tinsel ribbon used

Aww this is so cute! No wonder you just had to colour it in and make something - I love times like that when you are so inspired to just stop and create. xx
