Jolly Happy Soul

Oh what fun I had yesterday playing with the new images that Squigglefly just released! This card uses the absolutely adorable Snowy Card image by Marla Shega.


(click to enlarge)

I printed it on Kraft card stock and colored with colored pencils. After cutting it out with a circle nestabilities die I stuck a crocheted snowflake on and embellished with a few stick on gems.

This one is fast to make, but looks like I should have taken a little bit more time to make sure I got the ribbon on the side straight! LOL!


Now I have a great card to share with you! In my blog surfing yesterday I found this fantastic card made by Glenda for the Squigglefly Playing favorite challenge. I just love her color combination on this, and this image is one of my favorites too because it's such a versatile one!

I hope you have a great Sunday, and I'll see you tomorrow!

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we get to see this guy this winter! :) He is one of the first new images I grabbed because of that classic look on his face! Sooo charming! I love that you printed him on Kraft paper...it's my new 'find'! I just can't seem to get enough these days! Your snowflake is all this card needed...love the bling! Now if you hadn't brought the ribbon to my attention, I would have just thought it was the angle the photo was taken! The ribbon is fabulous, BTW! If you look at any of my work, you'll see NOTHING is straight...'cept for my layers and that's ONLY because of this handy tool I have...teehee! :) I'm sure whoever receives this will be too engrossed in all the other elements of the card to even notice! If not, I wouldn't want to send them a card anyway!!! So there!

Hugs~

This makes me want to sing "It's a jolly-jolly Christmas." :) this is just adorable and gorgeous ribbon.

Question.
I down loaded an image, used a heat gun but the ink still smears when I am trying to color. How do I stop this?
thanks :)

I almost bought this guy Holly. But I saw a lot of gray shading and I wasn't sure how to deal with that colring wise. But looks like you mounted the situation and did a fab-o job!
