A Bit of Mistletoe

Hi All!  I've got another Christmas card to share with you :)  I know, two cards in two days?  It's Christmas card madness up in here!  Sorry- back on track Katie.  I purchased some new holiday stamps from Some Odd Girl and have so enjoyed coloring them up with my Copics.  Here I used Mistletoe Kaylee and paired her with some paper from My Minds Eye 12 Days of Christmas paper pad.  I used two of my favorite colors, but ones I don't usually pair together, and I quite like how they complement each other...I'll have to use this pairing again for sure.  Because this had to be mailed I didn't use any flowers or anything, instead going for a more clean look with some bling and some twine wrapped between the image and its mat, then I finished it off with a chipboard sticker that says Joy from my Christmas stash.  I hope everyone is working their way through their holiday to do list- try not to get to stressed to enjoy the season!  And I'll be back shortly with some more Christmas card cheer :)
Copics:
Skin: E000, E00, E11, R21, R30, BV31
Hair: E21, E23, E57, E59
