Baby's First Christmas Card

This week Bugaboo Digi Stamps is having a Christmas in July daily challenge event. Needless to say, I started late to the game. It started on Saturday and I just started playing along last night. I have some catching up to do! This Baby's First Christmas Card was made for the Sunday sketch challenge. My brother and his wife are expecting their first baby and it's due the middle of December. We don't know the gender of the baby yet, so I went with what I hope is gender neutral colors.

The image is called Christmas Rocking Horse and it was colored with a mix of Copic markers and Stampin' write markers. All patterned papers are from the Eskimo Kisses paper pad by Basic Grey. The date on the paper pad is 2009 so it's been hanging around for awhile. The sentiment was created on the computer using Georgia as the font. For a little sparkle I added three gold sequins but one really doesn't show up in the picture. It's on the lower left side of the holly paper. That's it! I'm pretty happy with how this card turned out. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!
