Sparkle All the Way

Hello again, my friends.  Happy Monday. This is my first day back to school for Fall Semester. So far, so good. There is a lot to learn. One class is American Foundations which is American History. I had to take a Pretest and there is a lot I do NOT know about that subject.

Over the summer break I have been working on Christmas cards and this is one that I have ready for my blog. I hope to get the rest posted soon. This image is one that I got a couple years ago when Stitchy Stamps was still in business. In fact, I have used it before on a card, but I really like it.

The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley - Swirly Festive Greetings. Card stock is Stampin Up Real Red, and the designer paper is some I've had for ages from Papertrey Ink called Sugar Plum.

I used Copic markers to color and added some Stickles to her wings and white puff paint to her Santa cap.

I am submitting this card for the following challenges:
