Have A Very Very Merry Christmas

Hello.  Happy Friday.  Christmas is less than 2 weeks away...yikes, it's coming up fast!
Here's a Christmas card that I've just finished...


I love the shape of the Go Kreate die that I used for this card--it's one of my favorites.
And I've actually made this into an easel card.



I'm featuring this adorable image designed by Sylvia Zet of Wee Stamps...


and she is called 'Berry.'

I've coloured the image with Letraset Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Pantone Trias--colours used are listed below.
Hellebores Flower tutorial you can find HERE, although my flowers on this card are of a smaller version.
Pinecone tutorial you can find HERE.
