And the Stockings Were Hung.

I have some really exciting news.  As you can see from the Badge over to the right, I am a Guest Designer for December for Perfect Sentiment Challenge blog.  I'm really stoked to have been invited to be part of this awesome group of ladies.

The Perfect Sentiments Challenge happens every Wednesday and always has a twist.  This week the Challenge is A Sparkly Christmas. Challenge: Create a card that reflects a sentiment for Christmas

Twist: Make it sparkle- use glitter, shimmer mists, glittered cardstock or paper etc. You can never have too much sparkle. 

I got this cute digi stamp from The Outlawz designed by Sandi Huggett.  Isn't she just the cutest thing ever.

 The card base is SU Bashful Blue.  I found the dp in my Christmas stash and just knew that I wanted to create something with it a little outside the box - not the usual Christmas colors.  The layers were all matted with Bashful Blue.  I put some red stickles on her dress bow and also added some to the Recollections flower.  The lace strip is also from Recollections as well as the leaves.  That upper right corner just cried out for a little bling.

Of course I used my Copic markers to color the image:  BG01; G03; G05, G14; E50; E51, Y15, Y18; T5, T6; R24, R27, R32, R35, R37, R50, R81, R83, R85.

And I must give credit for the inspiration of this card to Michele Boyer.  I CASE'd her card on page 28-29 of the Copic Coloring Guide.
