Season's Tweetings

Pink, Blue & Purple...NOT my favorite colors, but that was the added challenge for the Christmas Challenge divas! Was this ever a challenge! But I was able to come up with something that I really like. This is the sketch that we used and this is my card. I turned the layout on its side as it worked better for my stamped image.
The image is by Inky Antics and all but the hats were colored with colored pencils and Gamsol. The hats were colored with SU!'s Pale Plum marker because I didn't have a colored pencil that would match the plum paper. I also used SU!'s photo corner punch. It's hard to see in the photo, but the photo corners are stamped with a little snowflake image from Lizzie Anne Design's set: In the Background. I used Cotton Candy stickles for snowflakes and Frosted Lace stickles for the hats. The notched panel was cut from Cricut cartridge Accent Essentials. Ribbon from unknown source. Plum paper is Dark Plum Demask by Creative Imaginations; pink is CTMH; and blue is from my scrap box.
Be sure to click on each of the divas blogs (on the right) to see what they did. I love seeing everyone's version of the same challenge. We would love for you to play along. Stop by the Christmas Challenge blog to see how you can join us.
