Christmas Cards 2012 ~ #1

Thought I'd post one of the special cards I made for Christmas this year.  It's very nontraditional for me, as I'm a red & green kinda' girl.  But I really like how it turned out!

The patterned papers are from a Jillibean Soup Christmas Eve Chowder 6 x 6 pad.  Love the fun papers in this collection!!
The CS is Bazzill from my LSS.
The stamp I used is Pure Innocence "Flurry of Love" from My Favorite Things.
I colored her with the following Copics:
     Skin ~ E00, 11, 13;  R21
     Coat, Hat, Scarf, Mittens, Boots: ~ YG21, 23, 25; RV00, 02, 04, 23, 25, 29; B00, 02, 04
     Snow ~ C0, 1, 2, 3

I also used some Spellbinders dies to create the image and sentiment panels, and I used a My Creative Time die to create the front scalloped circle panel.  The scalloped borders were created with an EK Success punch.  I also used Stickles to add some sparkle to the card.  I added some buttons and baker's twine to finish off the card.

I'm going to enter this card in the current Pink By Design Non-Traditional Christmas Colors challenge.

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek!  I'll be back in a couple of days with another card!
