Christmas Choir

I see I have a couple new followers and I would like to say 'Welcome to You' and thanks for stopping by!
This is Christmas card #3!  Woohoooo!  I actually don't send out too many Christmas cards and the handmades go to only a few so I should have enough done by  the time I need to send them out.
This image is designed by Chrissy Armstrong for Whimsy Stamps and is called Christmas Choir Girl.  There's a little boy image too and they are just the cutest.  I've coloured the image with Copic markers and added some dots with a Viva Pearl pen.  The papers are from Bo Bunny's Father Christmas collection (probably my favourite collection ever!) and the snowflakes are Whimsy's Layered Snowflakes.  The brads are Basic Grey and the sentiment is from Lili of the Valley's fabulous Christmas Grungy Messages.
Challenges:
Basic Grey - Sparkle
Bearly Mine - Anything Goes
ABC Challenge - DT call
Emerald Fairies - Anything Goes
Totally Stampalicious - Create a Christmas card or project
