Mavis wears Holly

So, what did you think of Emily's release yesterday? Pretty awesome eh? I think it was the best release evah! I just can't wait to get my new rubbah - not that I don't have anything to colour, but it's always exciting to get new stuff.

For today's card, I coloured up another Christmas image. Yep, trying to do one a week! Here we have Mavis wears Holly. Isn't she sweet?

I coloured her up using prismacolour pencils, and based my colours on this  paper from Memory Box.  Sponged a bit of oasis green versamagic ink around mavis with die in place.
The border punch is from EK success. Added some glitter on her ruffles, and clear glaze on the berries.  Finished off with some red satin ribbon.

If you would like to play along with our challenge this friday, the theme is use a Huggabugg image. Email Emily your card by thursday night for a chance to win some bella bucks. 

Enjoy your day, thanks for stopping by.

Mavis is one cat I can't get enough of either! Really loving the colors and soft shading you used on this. If only I could get motivated to do a holiday card a week! Good Luck!
