Moonlight Wishes - Lili of the Valley


 Wow... I realized if I'm going to get all my holiday cards done and posted, I need to get busy because time is whizzing by.  Today's card was stamped using Lili of the Valley's Moonlight Wishes stamp.  I love using these stamps - I am fascinated by the whimsy of them and they stamp so crisp and clean plus very quick service.  I used Bo Bunny paper from their Father Christmas collection which I purchased from Lora at One Crazy Stamper and I have to say, that grouping of paper is some of the prettiest ever.  The sentiment is one from Stampin Up's Lots of Thoughts set.  I've used Copics to colour the image and added Glamour Dust to the moon and pom on the hat.  Then Stickles, Stickles and more Stickles!  The big snowflake is from a Jolee's Boutique sticker pack I'd bought at Michaels ages ago and the big clunky gem  was one I had in my stash so I glued it on and I like it... looks like it belongs there!  Have a great week!
