first christmas

hi everyone.
i have a card to share with you all today using one of the cute images from Lili of the valley. this is wish upon a star 
and i have coloured this cutie with my copic markers.
i have also used a variety of papers and card stock from my stash and i've used a variety of dies to embellish. to give my card a little dimension i have stamped and coloured a base image with c5 and then i have fussy cut and added my coloured image to the card using pinflair glue. my inspiration for this came from the very talented Mariska van der Veer i just love how she builds her images on her cards. (yet to be a little braver and do multi layers)

onto my card:

although the image is not from lotv's christmas range i thought it married nicely with the sentiments.


onto what i have used:
  6x6"white base card
super smooth stamping card
stamps: lotv's: wish upon a star, everyday christmas grungy messages.
  paper from my stash
ink: memento espresso truffle, versa mark water mark stamp pad, distress ink: antique linen & spun sugar
  r89: 85: 83: 81
e21: 25: 29
skin: e000: 00: 04: 11: 21
sakura gelly roll pen, glamour dust
