Mo's Digital No 6/Xmas card No 41.



So glad that I got round to using this image again, along with many others, this is one of my favs from Mo's wonderful creations.  I used the sketch for this week too over on Mo's Challenge blog.

Very simple with regard to papers but I have coloured her rather brightly so didn't want to overwhelm it!!  Tried a new way of colouring with a combo of prisma pencils and promarkers and I do like the rather vintagy feel this adds. 


Flourishes are from Quickutz and glittered up, and used my Holly CB embossing folder to make the Holly leaves as I didn't have a holly stamp big enough!  Had my eldest daughter, Holly, in  mind when making this card as she loves purple and told me she loves her namesake!  Used Copic Spicas again for the glitter and shine!

Signature final

Hi Julie

I found you via Gina's blog and thought I would "pop over" - as you do!!

This card is lovely. Gorgeous colours and feel to it.

Just wanted to say thanks for idea of cutting out holly from an embossing folder image - very effective.

Have a good Sunday.

Love Jules xx
