Non Traditional Christmas Card

Happy Holidays...

Sharing with you one of my many favorite non-traditional Christmas cards I made this year using one of my favorite Wee Stamps for Whimsy Stamps called Amy. I consider her my little prissy Christmas cowgirl bearing gifts of love from the heart to brighten our Christmas season this year.  I love that she can be used to brighten someone's birthday, bring get well wishes, thinking of you, thank you and more.

I had fun using different dry embossing folders by Sizzix for the fuzzy cut layered Christmas tree and Cuttlebug/Anna Griffin'-Snow Flurry folder for the aqua blue core'dinations paper. Adding a fun double layer of Blooming Vine by Memory Box with decorative elements of Spellbinders Nestabilities Fleur De Lis Rectangles, Floral Doily Motifs and Circles. For coloring I used Spectrum Noir markers and Faber-Castell pencils.
I would like to take this time to enter this card into the following challenges.

That card is really a gift. Such an array of elements, and arranged so beautifully. the buttons add dimension but it take a while for the eye to see why> great work. Thank you for joining us today at Word Art Wednesday with your fabulous art.
Advent Blessings of Hope and Peace,
