Christmas time....


Today's card is for the new challenge over at Whoopsi Daisy 
The theme this week is Monochromatic, I have used one of the recent lovely freebie images available from Whoopsidaisy digis. The digi images are great value for money and are beautiful images.
I decided to do a Christmas card, I printed off the image and coloured it in using promarkers. Added a little bit of sakura stardust pens to the fur, and gems to the presents.

I matted it onto some hologram card and used some red Christmas paper for the base card, and added some silver peel off greeting onto some embossed red card, and finally a red ribbon bow.
