Another Christmas Card

Good morning friends,
It is almost the end of February, and that means that my card using the free Christmas image from Digistamps4Joy should be posted in the Christmas challenge blog, or I won't be getting the next image. Well pleased to say I have made it. I had the image coloured, but just didn't get to putting the card together.

I coloured the little dragon with Distress inks and Twinkling H20's as these have a lovely shine. Added some puff paint to his hat for the fur effect and a bit of glitter to the bauble on his tail. I cut it out with an X-cut die.
The papers are left over pieces from my stash, with the red piece put through a CB folder and sanded slightly.
The sentiment is a Nellie Snellen stamp, punched out with a ribbon punch also Nellie Snellen and ribbon threaded through.
Pearls to finish.

Off to post it on the Christmas challenge and then will wait to see what the next image will be. If you would like to join in this challenge you can request the new image and then keep making a card every month with the new image you receive. A great way of staying ahead with your Christmas cards.
