Darcey's first Christmas.

I made this card for a friends little girl who was born in May. She is at a great age and will love her first Christmas with all the sparkle and lights.
The image is so cute and from Mo's Digital pencil called Beary Merry Christmas.

I wanted to keep the colours quite simple and so I teamed the image with a piece of paper from an Echo park collection called Keepin Cozy. I hand cut a wavy edge and mounted it onto red bazzill and simply followed the edge. I used a Lawn Fawn die cut for the Christmas and the other letters are from Doodlebug. I added a few clear gems from Papermania and a little star dust stickles on the fluff of the hat. (I've just noticed I haven't coloured the Bears Bow??! - How did I miss that?)

I used these promarkers & flexmarkers to colour the image -
Skin - Antique White, Blush, Soft Peach & Coral with Baby pink.
Clothes & hat - Poppy, Ruby & Cardinal red - touch of powder blue for shading.
Hair - Walnut
Bear - Warm greys with baby pink ears and pads.
