Last year I participated at the challenge at Catch the bug "Christmas in July" and it was really helpful to start with my Christmas cards, so this year I am planning to join again! This is my third entry for this week's challenge at Catch the bug.
I used this image that is not a Christmas one, but is a shopping lover... and many of our friends can be related to this lady here, hehehe.... I colored it with Koh-i-noor acuarelable pencils and placed it on a dark green mat.
I used a striped green paper (Oriental trading) and used some ribbons with small presents on it, that I think suits perfect for the image.
Then I made some poinsettias using one of my punches, red and green cardstock, a little bit of foami tape and small yellow stones, (I think they look cute...).
The sentiment was a freebie I grab a while ago, but now I don´t remember from where, so if you know, please, let me know as I would like to give credit to that person. I mounted it on the dark green cardstock (I cut it using a Sizzix oval die) and used small green stones to embellish it.
