Merry Christmas at Divas by Design

Hello friends.  We have a new challenge for you over at the Divas by Design Challenge Blog.  Our new challenge is "Merry Christmas" and it's open for 4 weeks, so you've got plenty of time to enter that last-minute Christmas card.

I used Penny Black's Ornamental Mimi on my card and colored her in traditional Christmas colors.  I added lots of Glamour Dust to her hat, wings, and the stars on her ornament.  I added some pearls to the snowflakes and the sentiment is by PTI.

Please be sure to stop by the Divas by Design Challenge Blog to see the gorgeous work by the rest of the DT and to find all the challenge details.  We are being sponsored by Delicious Doodles and StitchyBear Stamps.

Thank you for stopping by.

Hugs, Anita
