Holy Cow! It's Christmas!

Are you ready for another project for The 12 Days of Christmas at Catch The Bug? I'm still in Christmas card mode, too! This one is for Day 6, and we were asked to use humor in our card. I thought this image would be hilarious for a Christmas card!

I've used the Sketch at Sketchy Colors for my card layout. The image is from Bugaboo Stamps and is colored with Promarkers. All papers are scraps from my stash. I used the snowflakes Cuttlebug folder to emboss the strips of white cardstock and the photo corners in each corner. Silver pearls were used to embellish the card. The silver and blue glitter snowflakes add the finishing touch. The image and sentiment are punched with scalloped oval and circle punches. I used a clearstar gelly roll pen to add glitter and sparkle to the image.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
