Ok, on with the card. I used a free image today that Elizabeth is offering on her blog. It is of her cute little kitty character Michu, and Michu is peeking out from behind a Christmas Tree!
Is that the cutest image or what? You may recognize the background on this card. I used it for some of my own hand cut Christmas trees on a previous post here. I had the base sitting on my craft table, the colored and cut out image you see here was on my table too. My nosey, but very supportive husband came in the room to see what I was creating, and said "Hey, that cute kitty would look great on that card you started". No joke! So, the above card was a creative collaborative effort from Steve and I. That has never happened before, and may never happen again. But, I promised him that I would give him credit. I did all of the hard work though, isn't that the way it usually is with marriage?! LOL! I still love him though!
Ok, I colored the image with my Stampin Up markers, all except the star on the tree top and the white area on Mich's hat. Those two things were colored with some shimmer paint called smooch. You know me and bling, so I had to add some chunky glitter to the snow, some sticky gems to the tree, and the little stars falling from the sky were punched form foil card stock. The sentiment is from Stampin Up's "Teeny Tiny Wishes" stamp set. The rest of the card stock is from Stampin Up.
