From the Heart Sketch challenge no. 40

Hello everyone!! Today I got in the craft-room and played with a new image
 I bought at From the Heart Stamps called
 Holly Jolly Christmas and can be purchased here
Holly Jolly Christmas 

How cute huh???

I followed this week sketch at From the Heart

Here is what I have done with the cute image and this great sketch:

Colored with Prisma Color pencils and blended with OMS. Cut the image out with Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Oval die. I added stickles to the Christmas Balls and to the star, then added some Glossy Accents to the Birds eyes to make them pop! the DPs are from my Christmas Stash.

The inside, I used 2 different spellbinder dies, and the sentiment is a new 
wooden stamp added to my collection. I stamped it in Red ink from Stampin Up and then colored some green n yellow with my prisma color pencils. The DP is from the same stack as the DPs on the front of the card! Great stack from Recollections.

Thanks for stopping by!
