Holly Ornament

Today I have one card to share. I used new digi from Beccy's Place. It is called Holly Ornament.
I love to make Christmas cards. There is something very heart warming about them :o)
Image is colored with ProMarkers and I added lots of gold glitter gel pen to the ornament. Christmas decoration has to sparkle :)
I had a happy accident with coloring the image. Ribbon of the ornament was red at first but then I assembled the card, it kind a disappeared to the background. Then I took the blender pen, removed as much red as it was possible (which wasn't very successful), and recolored it with green. And I love the outcome :) I think if I was colored the ribbon green at first, it wouldn't turned out as nice.

I used many pattern papers on my card and followed the sketch from Pink Ink Sketch Challenges - Challenge 32 to assemble it. Black matting paper is colored with Promarker. I scribbled faux stitching with white and and gold gel pen.
