Happy Holidays

Hello everyone! Hope you are all doing well! I just can't resist those super cute Belles 'n Whistles Snowbabies at the moment. I'm totally in love with them..LOL  So I thought I make another Christmas card to show some more Christmas inspiration.

This is actually a pretty simple layout of the card but I kind of liked it. Also those papers were perfect for it. (sorry don't know the brand anymore) Luckily I found some scraps in my scrap box that matched the colors of my image. Because this time I did something very unusual for me...I colored the image without having my DP chosen. ARGH!. That is not me at all. I always pick my DP first and then start coloring. I hate searching through piles of paper and can't find the right ones. I'm pretty picky with that How are you doing it? 
I also used a Whimsy Sentiment from the Ticket Holiday Sentiment Collection and cut it out with the newly released Ticket Die from the new Whimsy Shapeology Die Collection. This die is perfect for all Ticket Sentiments! I like it a lot because it comes with an alignment tool which makes it very easy to have a perfectly cut shape every time. It is also easy to use and I am going to show a tutorial on how to  use the alignment tool with your die over at the Whimsy Inspirational Blog on Saturday. If you are interested stop by there on Saturday.

I colored Belle with Copics (Blues: B91, B93, B95, B97, Browns: E30, E31, E33, E34, Hair and Shoes: E25, E31, E50, Gold: Y00, Y11, Y15, YR24) and airbrushed (BG000) the background a little. Isn't she cute with her slightly cross-eyed look? Using a glitter pen I put lots of soft shimmer accents on her and I also used a lot of  Star Dust Stickles all over the card.

And don't forget that this collection of the Belles n' Whistles Snowbabies is a collection with a cause! Everytime you purchase a Snowbaby stamp Summer will donate 10% of the proceeds to Breast Cancer Research!

Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful Thursday!
