May Your Joys Be Many

Hi All!  See, I told you I'd eventually have some Christmas cards to share :)  And since they aren't for me I can share them as soon as I make them- bonus!  I picked up this gorgeous stamp called Angel Gwen from Some Odd Girl and have been dying to color this beauty up with my Copics.  I wanted her dress to be blue but not too bright so I used a combination of the lightest dusty blue that I have, B91, and some warm greys...then, to soften the edges without making the dress too grey, I picked up the B91 on my colorless blender and worked from the outside in.  A couple of times I thought I may have screwed it up but luckily by the end I was pretty happy.  This card has to be mailed so I couldn't go too crazy with the embellishments but I think it turned out pretty good and I'm happy to have my first Christmas card completed!  Thank you so much for stopping by to visit- I hope that everyone has a wonderful start to their week!
