A Merry Little Christmas

 I seem to be stuck on snowmen the last few days but I had to make this card for Paper Cupcakes' There's Magic in the Air Challenge.  Dru challenged us to make a Christmas card in the traditional colors "red & green".
There was a  Paper Cupcake image here you could download for free "A Merry Little Christmas" which I used for my card. Colored the image with Copics and gold glitter pen. Cut with circle die and matted on green circle mat. My base card is GKD All Spruced Up and the red mat is from stash. I embossed the red mat with Cuttlebug EF Snowflakes and sponged with SU Handsome Hunter ink and added glitter to snowflakes with Sakura Clear Star Pen.  Added some green ribbon to finish.
Challenges:
There's Magic in the Air
Digital  Tuesday Challenge: Sparkly Christmas
For Fun Challenges: Christmas
Our Creative Corner:  Add color and depth to dry embossing.
Crafty Catz Weekly: Do a challenge from their past challenges of your choice. I did Challenge 60- Christmas. 
Annabelle Stamps: Say it in green and red.

 Thanks for stopping by! Theresa
