Christmas Cheers

Cute Card Thursday has a fun challenge theme this week of Midnight Margaritas which works really well with the free digi image that Shirleys2Girls gave away when they reached 150 members on their SNR Cardiverse group. If you join the group here then you can download the image too. I also decided it is a good image to bling up a bit and am entering it for the Simon Says Challenge this week of "all that sparkles".

I prnited out the image onto plain paper and then ran it through the printer again with some patterned paper glued down over one of the images with 505 spray, to make the upholstered chair. The image was coloured with Copics; while I was colouring I thought the outfit was a bright pink but now I've combined it with the papers it looks far too red - oh well... There's lots of bling added: she has a gem bracelet and earrings, as well as gemstones on the background, the wine glass is coated with Glossy Accents and the Santa hat has Perfect Pearls that are coated with Glamour Dust for the brim and bobble. The sentiment, from Hero Arts, has more Glamour Dust around the edges. Ribbon from stash, papers came free with a magazine.
