DOUBLE JOY {Art by Mi Ran Showcase Blog}

{DT Project for Art by Miran}

One has to pinch oneself to realise it is only five weeks to Christmas.  But at least I managed to tick of another Christmas card, thanks to this cutie pie created by Mi Ran. She is called  DESI.  Desi looks gorgeously snug in her winter Christmas outfit. Do yourself a favour and hop over to Mi Ran's Etsy shop and check out her awesome digi creations, here.  You can purchase DESI here

The stars have been created with punches and the folded border at the bottom with paper squares. She has been coloured with Copics. The brads and design papers are from my stash. The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC} and has been coloured with dry chalks and Copics.

    8. She is so adorable. Love the stars to compliment the poinsettias. The "paper ribbon" made with the squares is so awesome - not sure how you did that! Lovely sentiment too.
