Old English Sheepdog Christmas Card Joan's Challenge

Good Evening Ladies,
Slowly getting ready for Christmas. Today I went to get lights for my new tree. I decided my old m&m guy lights are to heavy for the new skinny tree. So we went out to get new smaller lights. Wal-Mart was our first stop. I could not believe it. Wal-Mart was out of tree lights. So off to ace I went. I found lights there on a reel. All on one string. I bought these. I will not have all those plugs going down the back of my tree this year.
Here is my card for the challenge over at
Old English Sheepdog Christmas Card Joan's Challenge ....
The challenge is a christmas card....anything goes.
To create this card I stamped an old english sheep dog on white cardstock and embossed it with black embossing powder. I colorized him using copic markers. He was cut out by hand. I took white glitter cardstock and covered my card. I tore two strips of white glitter cardstock to create layers of snow. Three Christmas trees were cut from green holly holographic foil paper using a spellbinder die set. They were added on to the card with the layering of the snow pieces. I added a flatback angel to the top of the largest tree. Pieces of a gold glitter holiday pick was added to each corner. In the very corners of each gold leaf piece I added rouge liquid pearls to create holly berries.
When I create my Christmas cards no two are alike. I am not one for repeat creations.
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog
