Winterize Your Cards!

New challenge at Squigglefly this week!!  Make a winter card.  Use a Squigglefly image and you have a chance to win a prize!
So here's my winter card.  I used Squigglefly digi image Angeld Up Christmas Caroler by artist Cheryl Alger.  I love this character, and have a collection of images featuring her in all kinds of poses and seasons.
I popped Christmas patterned paper onto a green cardstock base.  I colored my digi image with a mix of Spectrum Noir and Copic markers, then used Liquid Glass and Stickles for some shininess!  I then fussy-cut the image and popped it onto a red "frame.
I embellished my scene with red ribbon, candy cane border stickers and a couple snowflakes. 
I have a few Christmas cards already signed, stuffed and addressed, and it's not even December yet!!  But I know (from previous years' experience) that once December hits, it flies faster than Santa's sleigh.  So I may as well get ahead of the game for a very short time LOL
Happy crafting!

Don't you just love her 'Sassy' poses? I'm pretty sure I was the master of some of her facial expressions when I was a kid!! (especially the ones with mega attitude!) Love her popped up and love your background to make her pop even more! Great card Pat!
