Holiday Celebration

Happy Thursday sweet friends.  Whimsie Doodles has a new challenge today and as their guest artist this month I get to play along with their team!


Their theme for this challenge is Holiday Celebration and I have used this sweet image, Big Gift, on my card.  Isn't she just the cutest little girl?  I colored her with copics and colored pencils and used Glamour Dust on the gift bow.  I applied Liquid Applique to the furry parts of her hat.  I added a doily, bow, and a pretty silver bell to my card.  The sentiment is from the Merry & Bright set by My Favorite Things.

Be sure to stop by the Whimsie Doodles Blog to see what the team created and to find out all the challenge details!

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Anita
