Come check out the festivities at Catch The Bug!

My card today uses this week's Freebie Friday image, from Bugaboo Stamps. I went with traditional Christmas colors of red and green, with a touch of cream.  All papers are from my stash. THe image is colored with Promarkers, with glitter and sparkle added using a clearstar gelly roll pen. The two metallic gold bows have pearl centers are are the perfect added touch.
