Christmas Card 1

Hi everyone! I am joining many of you in my quest to make most of my Christmas Cards this year.  This of course is #1, yup I am on a roll.

I used this super cute image from Bugaboo. I purchased several of her Snow Globe images soooo you are gonna see a few lol.  I colored her with Copics (skin) and Prismacolor colored pencils and OMS for the rest of the image. I used Liquid Applique for the snow on the image and in the corners of the card.  

I cased this gorgeous card by Claudia Rosa (it was my attempt at casing, I don't think I really came close). I love her work!
