Cups of Joy

Just in case you are getting tired of seeing my holiday cards, well... I'm not finished yet!  This is Purple Onion's Cups of Joy and I just love this image.  Because of the wild Christmas rush, I didn't get a chance to post it before so I like to think that instead of being late for the holidays in 2013, I am actually early for the holiday in 2014!
The sentiment is one from the Handwritten Holiday set and I find that little set so versatile - it is all winter/Christmas related but I used it over and over and over.  When finished colouring, I made the border around the image using a Copic Mulit-liner... I love those liners too... no smudging or smearing, ever!

Beautiful Mar! The tea cups are so pretty and go so well with the paper you chose. I love how you added the 3 red pearls on the bottom, they really tie the card all together.
