Christmas Garland

Wow, can you beleive how fast time is flying by! It's nearly 2012 already! Where does the time go?!

Today marks our last challenge for 2011 at Shelly's Images and our theme is "Celebrate," spotlighting today's featured image, Christmas Garland, which is available here, in the Shelly's Images Store.

My card uses the Sketch at Seems A Little Sketchy for the layout. All papers are from my stash. I used gold glittered brads and a glittery gold Christmas tree as my embellishments. The image has been colored with Promarkers and had glitter and sparkle added with a clearstar gelly roll pen.

Come over to Shelly's Images and help us "Celebrate" by playing along in our challenge this week!
