Christmas in April and Blog Candy Winner

Hi everyone and Happy Monday! :) I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and a wonderful day. I was reorganizing my design paper over the weekend and found some gorgeous paper I had left over from my Christmas cards this past Christmas. I decided why not get ahead a little bit and make a Christmas card. I decided to create an easel card using an adorable image from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design.

For my card, I inked up the adorable image called Winter from SCACD. I colored the image with copics and then added lots of Diamond Stickles to her coat and the dog's scarf. I also added Glossy Accents to her eyes. Next I created my card base out of SU cardstock. The design paper is from K&Co. I added some snowflakes (from Me and My Big Ideas, I got them at Michael's) and some roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. The sentiment is from Whiff of Joy. What do you think?

I also wanted to post the winner of the blog candy offered in my Magnolia Once Upon a Time posting. The lucky winner is:
