Getting Ready for Christmas

Uggg I was feeling so pants yesterday with a migraine headache that I didn't feel up to putting the words in here last night, so I just posted the images originally.

I'm feeling MUCH better today so here I am to tell you what I've done.

The images has been coloured with Copics, a black polychromos pencil and a white gel pen.  Around the image I've scattered some embossing enamel.

My design papers from Maya Design, First Edition and Studio Light have all been distressed with a Tonic Solutions tool.

To the right of the image you can see some banners cut with a La La Land die.  I've used the pink heart from this around the image and cut some more for the banner centres out of grey design paper.  Underneath the image in a piece of grey ribbon I got from Crafty Ribbons.

There's a laser cut Christmas tree which I got in Hobby Craft years ago (my last one).  I've added a few pink gems to this.  To finish off there are a few pearls and a wood chip Christmas sentiment.

Hope you like my non traditional coloured card for the theme
See you at the challenge :)
