The Best Gift at Shelly's Images




I'm in the Christmas spirit, this week and so are the wonderful ladies over at Shelly's Images. Today only, in
the Shelly's Images store, you can get this cute digi stamp, Best Gift, for the special sale price. This image is perfect for all you kitty lovers out there!

For my card, I am using the Best Gift Image, colored with Promarkers. When I first colored this, I felt like perhaps I had made the wrong color choices. I kept looking at it, thinking the colors just didn't work. But then I found these spotted papers in my stash, and the cutest little string of Christmas lights. The Christmas lights are from the Christmas section of Hobby Lobby. I'm not quite sure what they were meant to be used for, but I don't think it was meant for cardmaking. In any case, They ended up being the perfect touch for my card, and they were just what I needed. (Those lights were a pain in the you know what to attach, though!) My card layout is a CASE of Michelle's DT card at Corrosive and also fits the sketch at Scrumptious, Fairymoon Crafts and the simple sketch at Priscilla's Styles. I've added some sparkle to the image, using a Clearstar Gelly Roll Pen. The three red and white striped metal brads are from my stash.
