You Light Up My Life

Hi everyone!
It's me, Kathy, tonight, with a new Christmas card to share.

I used this darling La La Land Crafts Marci image and colored her with Copics and Spicas.  The template is from Christmas Challenges with Sketches, and it's a keeper.  I really like all the layers of gilded papers, which are from a very old Hobby Lobby Christmas pad (2010).  Green cs and gold metallic cs are from DCWV.  The sentiment from MFT is stamped with Versafine Sepia and mounted on a Sizzix die cut using metallic cs.  Two swarovskis were added for bling!  I used an Impression Obsession holly die and decorated each corner with holly and deep red Swarovskis.  Since it IS JULY in the south, I love that Marci is wearing a sleeveless dress and flip flops!!!  She definitely goes well with our 100 degree temps and humidity!!!!

I am also entering the following challenges:

Robin's Fetish - Christmas in July
Sweet Stampin' - What...Christmas in July!!!
Weekly Christmas Card Challenges - Snowflake/Xmas card
