Holiday Happiness...

613 Ave C's December challenge starting today is  
"Holiday Happiness" .  
The amazing 613 Team has provided some ideas for you to spark your mojo - and all the details you need to enter the challenge can be found at the link above for 613.  There are several prizes available this go around - so come on - join the fun!

This image is called "Billie Jo" and was provided by Rick St. dennis for my use for this challenge.  I used Paper Sculpting techniques to achieve the focal image.  There are five copies of the image, each colored, fussy cut for the appropriate layer, sculpted and adhered with glue and/or foam tape to achieve the dimensional look.  You can see the layers better in these images... 

The sentiment is Rubbernecker - 

The Die-cuts of the two different Evergreens and the Holly are both Tim Holtz.  The embellishment of the tree in the foreground has been done with Liquid Pearls.
I did my coloring with Copics:

  10. There you are my friend! Good to see you again in blogland. And what a way to welcome us back with this beauty. The coloring is absolutely perfect (as always!) and I love the design. How cleverly you've placed the sentiment inside the card. I'll have to remember this one, I like that it gives plenty of space to write a personal message.
