Special Christmas Wishes

I am trying to keep ahead with supplies of Christmas cards.  It is sad when we have to keep them as flat as possible due to the cost of posting but there isn't much choice.

For my card I have used an Art by Miran image called "Desi".  I have gone with a colour scheme of traditional Christmas red and green.  I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers and chalked the background.  I have added some Stickles glitter glue to her fur collar.

I have used a piece of Hunkydory card  which I have had for some years which I was too nice to use so decided the time had come to use it on a card.

I have finished the card off with a die-cut ribbon trim, sentiment from the computer and some gems.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Such a cute card! Love how you've colored your image and the quilt like pattern of your paper. I can so sympathize with having to keep cards flat and postage cost. It has gotten so expensive, hasn't it?! – Shani, 613 Ave. Create GDT

My your are getting ahead, Kym! Fab card with a sweet image and lovely traditional colour tones. It's so hard to try and keep cards flat these days, as even if you add a pearl it seems to be too large to fit through the tiny little slot that Royal Mail give for standard mail!
