Concetta Kilmer - Mr and Mrs Christmas Sweets

Sorry for the delay in posting this.  We have been away in our caravan to Eastbourne and only got back this afternoon.  Don't mention wind and rain!!  In the early hours of Monday morning we moved from the caravan into the car as we thought the high winds were going to topple our beloved caravan over.  Thankfully it didn't but it was a worrying time.
Here is a card I have used using a Sweet Pea Stamps image by Concetta Kilmer.  It is called "Mr and Mrs Christmas Sweets" and is available as a digital stamp or a single rubber stamp.
I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers, highlighted areas with my Sakura Stardust clear pens, inked around the edges with Tim Holtz's Peeled Paint and Pine Needles distress ink and decided that both owls needed googly eyes.  The backing papers I have given.  I have used a square Marianne Designs die and cut this out and inked with Peeled Paint and Pine Needles distress ink.  I have made two flowers using a patterned tissue paper and dies and held the layers together with some large brads.  I have finished the card off with some Marianne Designs die-cut holly, the berries for the holly I used a Sizzix die as I wanted to 3D the berries and a Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment.
