Christmas Wishes - My First Christmas Card of the Season

Hi everyone and Happy Tuesday! Wow, what a crazy week so far and it's only Tuesday! :) I did manage to get a quick card made last night, my first Christmas card of the season.

For my card, I used this adorable cut from the Winter Frolic Cricut Cartridge (probably my favorite winter/Christmas cartridge). I cut the image out at 4 inches (I designed everything in my Gypsy). I hid her face in my Gypsy and used a Peachy Keen face stamp (from the Princess Face Assortment set). I ran her coat through my Cuttlebug using my Swiss Dots embossing folder, and then put everything together. I did some doodling with my white gel pen. Next I created my card base out of SU cardstock. My DP is from DCWV (loved the nontraditional colors). I added some pearls, a bow, snowflakes (these are from Me and My Big Ideas, I got them at Michael's and have been hoarding them :) ), and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts for some finishing touches. I usually stamped my sentiment on the outside, but the paper was too pretty to cover up so this time I stamped it on the inside. My sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. Thank you all so much as always for stopping by. Make sure to stop by tomorrow to see my first post as a member of the Joy's Life Stamps DT. Have a great day :)
