November DT Day At Meljen's Designs.

Good morning!! Today is my DT Day at Meljen's Designs!! :) I love using Meljen's Images!!  Today I used Holly Christmas Fairy for this card. My inspiration to start making Christmas Cards!!!  So here it is:

I layered the image.. the scarf, holly... I colored everything with my Prismacolor Pencils and my Gamsol! :)  I used two twine.. red and white and green and white over the thick ribbon. I added the Cheery Lynn dies with holly.. I added the button. The papers are Bo Bunny Elf Magic. I disressed some of the edges. I used my favorite Marvvy Snow Marker on her hat around the rim, the ball and the bottom of the dress. I added the little doily. :)  I hope it inspires you to work on Christmas! Meljen's has TONS of GREAT! images just waiting :) The sentiment, Holiday Cheer is from Paper Smooches.
