Yes, Christmas!

Happy Thursday Everyone!

I found a cute little sketch from Sketch Saturday for a challenge and I thought I would give it a try.  I know Christmas is still nine months away, but never too soon to start on those Christmas cards.  It was actually nice to pull those Christmas colors out again.

I am taking the intermediate copic class on Saturday!  Can't wait!  I can mark off one of my goals this year!!

Paper:  Cosmo Cricket, My Minds Eye and image is colored on Cryogen.
Inks:  Copics & Memento
Embellishments: ribbon, buttons, flowers, pearls
Dies:  Spellbinders
Image:  Magnolia Gingerbread Tilda

Inside - sentiment left blank for when I send the card.
Copics used
