Lili of the Valley - Pink Christmas Squirrles

Hello again!

Normally my posts won't be quite so close together, but I finished my first Christmas card just yesterday and thought I would share it.

This card just makes me happy, I originally make it for a friend but I'm going to have a hard time letting it go! The image is Lili of the Valley's - Red Squirrels Christmas Tree Stamp (which may or may not be discontinued). The Image is colored with Copic Markers and has a little bit of sparkle on the snow from a Twinkle pen.

I used Fun Foam to pop up the banner and give it a little more dimension. The flowers are from Wilde Orchid Crafts, I used one of there larger light pink roses and two white/pink cherry blossoms. Behind the flowers is some "bakers twine" with a gold accent. The aqua and white pearls were made with the Ranger liquid pearls, and finally there is a 6" doily placed behind the image.

This is what the inside of the card is going to look like. Most of it is already put together but I haven't found the right sentiment yet so I'm holding off until I have the sentiment and my own message written out.

The Paper is from MME's new Sugar Plum line, and the final two die cuts are from Tim Holtz and Memory Box(the same tree is on the front of the card).

I hope you liked this card, please let me know your thoughts in the comments below!
