MERRY CHRISTMAS {Art by Mi Ran Challenge 48}


Hope all of you are keeping well and having loads of creative fun. 

I am here with another card for the Art by Mi Ran's CHALLENGE BLOG where Challenge 48 is underway and the theme is always ANYTHING GOES. I have used this beautiful GIRL called MERRY CHIRSTMAS, created by the talented Mi Ran. Isn't she just so festive amongst the poinsettias.
Do yourself a favour and hop over to Mi Ran's Etsy shop and check out her
awesome digi creations, here. You can purchase MERRY CHRISTMAS  here.

The image has been coloured with Copics and dry chalks. The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC} .  The design papers and brads are from my stash. The flowers have been created with flower punches.  Added some stickles for extra sparkle.

I would like to venture over to the following challenges with this:

  26. Hi Desire,

    Firstly wishing you a very happy belated 2016, I hope this year is a really good year for you. Sorry that I haven't been around since December, life got crazy and because I was so disorganized I needed to take a break and take time to catch up on everything, all has finally calmed down and I am looking forward to 2016. I just wanted to thank you for sharing this amazing project at Anything goes December link-up, Just keep on creating. You are one of the featured artists and also the link-up has just been posted for February, I look forward to seeing lots of your beautiful creations xx
