I used a Kenny K digi image called Mistletoe, I love these Kenny K images, they are great to colour and make brilliant images for a man's card. I find men's cards a challenge as I can't add my usual bling and girlie bits. I coloured her in with my Copics and used my Prismacolor pencils to add some depth to the colouring. I glittered all her fur trims with Stickles Star Dust and distressed the edges of the image with a Stempelglede Flourish Heart stamp then I stamped a Forever friends sentiment to the edge. My sentiment is a freebie, I can't remember where I downloaded it (sorry!)
I cut out my image using a Nestie oval die which I mounted onto red card from my stash and die cut my Marianne poinsettia out of the same card, then sprayed it with Glimmer Mist and added a Prima flower centre for a little bit of bling! The backing paper is glittered cardstock in black and some Christmas wrapping paper that I glued onto some more of the red card with a punched edge using Martha Stewarts Aspen Snowflakes punch. To finish off I added some black ribbon and some feathers from my stash for texture.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

I'm off into town to finish my Christmas present shopping today, will be wrapping tomorrow, cleaning on Wednesday, meeting a good friend for lunch and a catch up on Thursday, my son is home from uni for Christmas on Friday - can't wait to see him, and I have to do a big food shop before he arrives too! as well as the 1001 other things that have been neglected whilst crafting & blogging my hours away! Not much time for crafting this week then : ( Though I might just manage to squeeze another card in before the big day. Whatever you're doing, stay safe and warm. Thank you again for stopping by and please take a minute to leave me a comment and then I can visit you too.
