All I Want For Christmas...

This image from Digistamps4joy is so cute I didn't think it needed too much more on the card as I didn't want to detract from the image.

I have used the Creata Happy Holidays clear stamp set 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' stamp, Creata sky blue A5 classic paper and Happy Holidays die cutting & embossing set.  I thought this sentiment went perfectly with the pleading face of the image.  The silver ribbon bow is from my stash.

The digi images is mounted on foam pads on to a plain DL pre-scored card.

I like these icy blue tones, it must be because of my love of snow!  I used the following Graph It markers;  Suit; 7105, 7110, 7125, boots; 7130, 7160, 7175, 9502 lips; 6130, hair; 3140, 3160, skin; 4120, 4125, 4135, hat bell; Silver shake

I used Fluffy Stuff (yes that's its real name) on the hat and coat trim.  You simply apply it from the bottle (it has a very fine nozzle) and then heat with a heat gun which causes it to puff up, instant snow.  Think I need to get a huge bottle of this to use in the garden on Christmas Day! :-)

I wish to enter this into the Digistamps4joy monthly Christmas challenge (August)
