Trimming The Tree ...

Hi everyone. Hope you're having a nice relaxing weekend. 

I'm here to show you my first Christmas card. It's taken me ages to complete. I wish I wasn't so indecisive. Choosing the papers, embellishments etc has taken forever. There's no way I'm gonna have enough cards by Christmas. I'll just have to save homemade ones for 'special' people.  Looks like it's a trip to WHS for me!

I've used LOTV's Trimming the Tree along with papers from Authentique Paper's Wonder Collection.

They're so cute. They remind me of my three when they were younger.
Here are the Copic colours I've used:

Skin: E000, E00, E11, R30
Red Clothes: R39, R37, R35, R32
Green Clothes: YG91, YG93, YG95
Brown Shorts: E43, E42, E41, E40
Dog: E43, E42, E34, E35

I've embellished the card with a ribbon from my stash and a cute tree charm from Live & Love Cratfs. The flowers are from WOC and Live and Love Crafts.

The image has been cut with a Nestabilities circle die and mounted on their scalloped circle. The holly leaves are part of Memory boxes Holly Vine.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Lilis Little Fairies - Use 3 Dies or Punches
Crafts 4 Eternity - #101 Colour Recipe, Christmas Wishes
PaperPlay Challenges - Week 49 Christmas is coming

Have a great weekend and thanks for dropping by.

Big Hugs,
Janine x
