Tickled Pink Stamps Christmas Challenge July - Anything Goes Christmas Style

Hello once again ... I hope the week is treating you well. 

This is my creation for tonight.  A Christmas Card for a Tickled Pink Christmas Challenge.  This Challenge was 'anything goes' ... and I decided that my 'anything' is simple and uncluttered.  This seems to be my style.  I have been trying to mimic the gorgeous creations I see on other people's blogs but I gotta be honest most of them are just not me.  I don't know if its because I don't have that 'eye' that allows me to fill a card with gorgeously co-ordinated accessories or if its just that I like .... simple.

Well anyway enough waffling.....

I coloured with copics this gorgeous Tickled Pink digital Lil' Birthday Kellita (which I managed to score for FREE on Sunday!), a splash of red with some corrugated card, some Fozz Felt from Kaisercraft and some little round circle sticker things that I also coloured with copics to match.

What a nightmare it was to get the backing off that Fozz Felt!!!!!  Is it supposed to come off? Or do you just apply your glue to the back?  Well anyway I painstakingly peeled off every little bit .... arrrgggghhhhhhhh

I have used my ever faithful spica glittery pens to add some highlight ... and here is the end result.
Once again I'm very pleased and have already earmarked it for a special friend for Christmas.

I'm not sure if you can see the glitter on her lipstick or eyeshadow .. it looks much prettier for real.  I also added the spica pen on her boots as I thought it gave her a sexy/trendy look.

Thankyou very much for looking at my card and my blog .. and thankyou for the lovely comments you leave, they certainly make my day :)
