My First Christmas Card of the Season!

Well I did it! I finally made my first Christmas card of the season. I have a looooooooooong ways to go but hey, it's a start! I absolutely LOVE this stamp from Sassy Cheryl's. Isn't he the cutest? I wanted to try to make this card as colorful as I could so I went out of my way to throw in a lot of DP. Probably went overboard again but I can't help myself. :) 

He's colored with Prismas, and I tried to give it a slightly older look by using a little grey for shadows. Don't know if that really ended up being worth it or not, but hey. I added the snowflake to the top left corner because it needed "something" and then added a rhinestone for a little color. That was my last snowflake though so I have got to figure out where to buy more.... oh well, I guess I"ll just HAVE to do some more paper-craft shopping! :)

Thanks for stopping by!
