Celebrating the Holidays in Style

Hi everyone and Happy Monday! Can you believe there are only 5 days until Christmas! I can't believe how fast this month has flown by! I still have a few Christmas cards to make and send out. They might get out a little late but better late than never :) We had a wonderful Christmas celebration last night at my dad's with my sister and her family as well as my step sisters and step brother. We had a feast too, dinner was so yummy! Come Christmas, it will be my turn to cook, hope mine turns out as well! :)

For my card today, I decided to use some very nontraditional Christmas colors, but I love the way it turned out. My image is illustrated by the fabulous Elisabeth Bell and is available at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. I colored the image with copics and then inked around the image with SU's Pretty in Pink ink. Next I created my card base out of SU cardstock. My DP is from last year's DCWV Glitter Christmas stack. For some finishing touches, I added pink rhinestones (from the dollar bin at Michael's), a bow (tied with my Bow Easy), and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. Have a wonderful day and thanks so much as always for stopping by!
