Christmas in April ...

Creating a Christmas card in March is a little challenging, but I really had fun creating this card for the current Dare to be Sassy Thursdays Challenge which is of course Christmas.

This lovely image is called Winter Wendy from Sassy Studio Designs.  She was colored with Copic Makers, fussy cut out, Star Dust Stickles was added to the fluffy ball on her hat, and the top of her boots. 

The oval behind her looks white, but it's actually light green DP covered in snowflakes. ;(

I flipped the sketch from this weeks Card Patterns Sketch #159 Challenge for my design.


I also got some AWESOME news today, and can't wait to share with all of you!  But, I'll just have to keep my secret for just a little bit longer.

Until next time ... Enjoy!
