I'm Jingling to catch up

Hi Lovelies,

Today's card is a catch up card for one of my (many) fav' challenge blogs.  A few weeks back Jingle Belles had a food based sketch on so I printed out this cute Bugaboo Digi image thinking I'd enter a card, as I need a tonne of Christmas cards.  Alas time has a way of slipping past me & I missed the deadline.  So I decided the other day to do some colouring with my Copics & play.  I used different colours to what I usually use & tried different ways to what I normally do.  This is the final result.  Luckily for me Jingle Belles has a new challenge on that this fits so I get to play one last time for the year.  Yay!  I'm hoping to play in every single challenge that they do next year.  I want to be ahead in Christmas cards & not way, way, way behind.

I added Liquid Pearls to Decon's hat & then added some Frosted Lace Stickles to the Liquid Pearls once it had dried.  I quite like the look.  I also added Frosted Lace to the candy cane just to give it some extra oomph.  I really like the way my experiment turned out so I cut it out with a Spellbinders Nesitibilities.  Inked around the edge with Distress ink & layered it onto a card based that I had stamped with Impression Obsession's Twas the night in Distress ink.  

Thanks for stopping by today & I love hearing what you have to say :)  Happy crafting everyone

this is one of my favourite images Paula. I love how you made the fur on his hat and the colours you did him in. A fabulous card
