Sweet Pea Stamps Christmas is Just Around the Corner Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Sweet Pea Stamps Christmas is Just Around the Corner Blog Hop! 

Today our wonderful design team members are featuring a plethora of gorgeous Christmas themed images in both, rubber and digi format, to inspire your Christmas crafting.
For my card I chose to use the gorgeous 'Snowy Siren's' by Concetta Kilmer.  I couldn't resist those gorgeous wee snowmen along side the gorgeous mermaids.  My image is coloured with a mix of Letraset Tria and Promarkers, with the addition of some white gel pen on the snowmen and for highlights, and Sakura metallic and glitter pens for the christmas lights, and highlights in the mermaids hair.
You can see the glitter and sparkle better in this close up;
I wanted to add some dimension to my card, aswell as create a star filled sky.  So I used my Crop-a-dile to punch holes in the sky before layering my image onto some metallic paper, using foam pads to give a little height.
I then layered my image onto some purple metallic card.  I also layered some snowflake patterned paper onto some purple metallic card before adding them all to my card blank.  I kept my embellishments very simple, creating a large bow from some purple ribbon.  A very simple layout, but with such a beautiful image it doesn't take much to make a pretty card.

Talking of pretty, I thought i'd share a wee picture of my pretty wee Sophie 'helping' me with my creation!
