Flourishes Christmas Challenge 19

We had our first major snowfall of the season last night, and it looks so pretty outside. Dog 1 and Dog 2 had a blast playing in the snow, and both came in covered in snow.

I did this card a few weeks ago, and haven't had much time to post it. It's for the Flourishes Christmas Challenge. 

I have really enjoyed playing along with these challenges, and can't wait for the next one. This month's challenge was Round like a Wreath. I had a bit of a time trying to come up with ideas for this one- the first card I created was a disaster- was not impressed at all with how it turned out. I absolutely love this stamp, and have used it quite a bit.

 I cut out the shape with a cricut cartridge for the red background, and then did the same with the music paper. I then stamped Santa and coloured with Copics. I think I am getting better with the skin tones, but still need a little work on lips. I'll come with practice (I hope). I added a little sparkle to his glasses with a silver gel pen and to the berries and holly with spica glitter pens.

Thanks for looking!
