Christmas Card Challenges - Color Inspiration

Good morning friends.  It is time for a new challenge at Christmas Card Challenges and this week we have a color challenge for you.

My card base is MFT Smooth White, the mats are SU Crumb Cake, and the stripe paper is from Teresa Collins Memorabilia 6x6 pad and the brown dot is from Colorbox Natural Expressions 6x6 pad (from Walmart).  The image is a free coloring image I found on Pinterest, (Click Here for the link).  I printed it on X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with Copics.  I used a Sakura Clear Glitter Pen around the wings, star and halo.  The sentiment is from MFT Christmas Ornaments.  I cut her out with Spellbinders Labels Seventeen die, and then traced the die on the back of the Crumb Cake mat and hand cut it out.

I am also entering my card in Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge - Anything goes Christmas.

Check out all the fabulous cards by my teammates over at Christmas Card Challenges and I hope you will be inspired to play along.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful week.
Happy Stamping,
