December is here, the last month of the year! It is my favorite month of the year, as we celebrate several things! First on Dec 5th we celebrate Sinterklaas, a Dutch tradition for kids. On the 15th we celebrate our daughters birthday, she will be 2 years old!!! And the Christmas, and New Years Eve, what a joy! I just love those holidays!
Anyway, since december is here, we also start a new challenge at The East Wind! Our theme for this one is easy, we want to see Christmas cards!!!
The papers I used are from Carte Bella, and I inked all edges with Distress Ink Vintage Photo.
I kept the design quite simple, because I printed off the image a little bit too big.
The image I used is this months newsletter freebie, which you all received. I used my Copic Markers to color the image, and I used the following.
Big cat: E71, E74, E77, C00, C1, C3
Small cat: YR24, YR27
Holly and berries: YG95, YG97, R89, R46
Gold: Y23, Y26, Y28
Bow: R24, R46, R89
I covered the bauble in Glossy Accents, but is pretty hard to capture that on camera. I also added some dots with a gold pearlmaker pen.
I added some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers as embellishments, and added some Magnola berries.
The sentiment is in Dutch, and says lots of big Christmas hugs. It is from a set from CreaMiep.
This was it for today, why don't you pop over and join us at The East Wind!
