Season's Greetings

For my Christmas card I have used a Ching-Chou Kuik new release called "Lily in Christmas".  I have coloured the image in with Promarkers, added Stickles glitter glue to areas, added chalks for the background and edged the image with Tim Holtz's Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint distress ink.  As you can see I didn't keep the image as lilies but in fact made them into poinsettias.

The backing papers are from a Debbi Moore magazine.

I have finished the card off with various Marianne Designs die-cuts (Anja border (LR0300), holly (LR0244) and square decorative shape (LR0234)), satin ribbon, sentiment, die-cut flower, pearl and Nuvo drops.
