It's Christmas!

Merry Christmas! I wish all of my wonderful blog friends and visitors a “Happy and Healthy Holiday Season.”

This will be my last Christmas card to show you this year.
I’ve been wanting to use this sweet Tilda with Fir stamp and I finally made time to make a card and enter it into a couple of challenges.
The designer papers are from My Mind’s Eye, “I Believe” paper pack. And I used a new product that I just purchased from Susana’s Custom Art and Card Design store called Sparkly Fluff. I’ve not seen this before and thought I’d give it a try. I used a very light layer on the fur of Tilda’s coat so that the cute curls of the stamp would show through. However, you can add multiple layers for extra dimension. I really like this product and it is likely to show up on more of my projects.
Here is a close up of the Sparkly Fluff on Tilda’s coat. The sparkle is subtle so that it still looks soft but very elegant.
And here are the Copics I used to color the image.

This card is my entry to the following Challenges.
