Hello Christmas puppy....

Good Evening,

The card I have made below I made for the ilovepromarkers challenge blog but I missed the closing date, so couldn't submit it in the end, so here it is anyway.

I used a freebie digi image from Whimsy stamps and coloured it in using Promarkers, then die cut it out using a spellbinders circle die and then edged around it with Tim Holtz distressing ink. I added a few gems and a glitter greeting from papermania. The background paper is from creata, one of their Christmas paper/card pads from create and craft. I then  edged with papermania glitter strips.
