I was working on my holiday cards and remembered that I had stamped these images out after borrowing this set from a friend to make my mother her Christmas card. So I set out to coloring it with my copics and once again, I think it turned out better than I personally thought it could. The sketch is one that I saw on Claudia's blog and thought it was so pretty. I layered the cardinal on Real Red and then used my SU DP Dashing to layer it on. I used my MS lace border punch to cut the River Rock and the SU photo corner punch to cut the river rock and dp and layered them. I then pierced each of them which I think just adds a little depth to the corners. The red strip down the middles is embossed with my snowflake cuttlebug folder. The flower is made with the SU 5 petal flower and one of the little flowers from the Flower trio punch(spring punch). The little tag is from y CB dies and Merry Christmas is from the hostess set Best Yet (I only stamped a portion of the sentiment to fit the tag. I finished off the card with a little stickles on the berries and popped the flower up to hang the tag on. I think that my mother will feel very special receiving this. I don't think that she reads my blog so it should be a surprise too!
Take care and hope to see you back soon!
