Magical Christmas.....

I have the most beautiful stamp to show you all today!!! Her name is Miranda by Elaine Cox and will be available at Sweet Pea Stamps.  Check the blog for the date she will be released. She is so versatile and an be used for any season just by changing your color scheme. I needed to catch up on my Christmas cards so she became a Magical Christmas waif to me.
I decided to make this one an easel card and this way it fits into my good friend Pascale's challenge over at Sweet Pea Stamper's and also the new challenge blog The Crafty Purple Frog anything goes.
I used a sketch from another of my friends Arlana at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. Arlana is a goddess when it comes to sketches.

I colored my image with copics and I wanted to keep a soft feel to her and just let her beauty show through! When I saw her she said red head to me so Auburn hair it was. The little pom poms in her hair were filled with fun flock and the dusted with stickles.  I also added liquid pearls in red on the leaves as holly berries and opal in and around her hair. The green mat of card stock behind her was embossed with the perfectly paisley cuttlebug  folder.  Last but not least I softened the look with a bit of lace and topped that off with some holly and gem stones.  I hope you like.

Make sure you check out the challenge blog "In A Sweet Pea Dream" and try your hand at the current challenge or a new challenge will be starting again tomorrow!
