Addy's Christmas Card

  

Hello friends.  Been mulling over what I wanted to do this past week for the current Merry Monday and HLS August Christmas challenges, and it hit me about 5:00AM this morning...use my new Penny Black Sweet Snowman stamp!  Merry Monday is looking for pastel colors, and HLS is looking for "sparkle", so I think I've got it covered!  Take a look:



Addy will be one next month, so Christmas will definitely be fun with her this year (she slept through most of Christmas last year!).  And what better than a shaker card for a little one?!!  I used my Copics to color in this sweet little snowgal (R81, C1, & C3), and also used a silver glitter pen for the bow on the package (sorry I couldn't capture the glittery-ness of that!!).  I used a bunch of different iridescent and sparkly sequins in the shaker part, and also added a sheer sparkly ribbon and tiny tag (PTI) to finish my card.
