Christmas Card 2

Hi Everyone! Thanks so much to all who left sweet comments on my Christmas Card 1 post! Welcome also to my new followers :). A special Thank you! to the Catch the Bug Challenge for the 4 images I won for my last card.  I have used another Bugaboo Snow Globe digi for my card number 2. I colored this digi with Prismacolor Colored Pencils and OMS. I used liquid applique on the snow and trees and obviously a lot of stickles! The paper is from an old Provo Craft 6x12 paper stack. Everything I used is a bazillion years old and from my huge stash (except the image).  

 I cased this gorgeous card by Louise at Passion Creations. I try to give the credit where it's due, even if my project doesn't come close to their amazing talent LOL!  I have decided that since artist learn to paint, by coping the masters, I can improve my skills by trying to imitate the card making masters :).
