LOTV Christmas Challenge card

Today’s card is based on a wonderful perfect Christmas Theme of “Red, Green & White”.  Well how much more Christmassy can you get than that!!   And perfect for the first inking of my new LOTV stamp – “Carol Singing” which I think has worked out quite well.
The background paper came from my stash but I’ve a vague notion it might originally have come from either Craft Creations or Making Cards magazine, but how perfect is it for the purpose having all the colours in it.
You can’t see them too well but I put 2 strips of beautiful bright gold bordered red ribbon under the image which I matted onto a scallop frame.

As ever the image was coloured in with Copics – primarily R29, R27 & R20 along with G29, G14 & G02.  Browns were E59, E51, E50, E29, & E00.  Greys/blacks & yellow were done with watercolour pencils. Crystal Stickles glitter glue looks wonderful on the hats.

Finished off with the usual Wild Orchid Crafts roses, diecut leaves & snowflake, red ribbon, & adhesive pearls.   Snowflake charm courtesy of my recent win from Bev’s site.
