SSNOTIME64 - Christmas Card With a Twist

Among all the fun partying on Sharon's blog, today's Stamp Simply challenge is a Christmas card using no traditional papers or stamps, but may use a Christmas sentiment. This great set from MFT came yesterday and I just had to use it for this challenge. I stamped the girl with Versamark then embossed with black EP. Colored her with Prismacolor pencils blended with baby oil, added some glitter to her shirt, then cut her out with Spellbinders Lg Labels die and matted with scalloped rectangle. Attached that to the turquoise base card. I added tiny rhinestones to the corner scallops, and also one on her index finger - nice blingy ring. :) Had the Spellbinders snowflakes and MS branch punches already sitting on my desk, so I added them too, with a rhinestone for more bling. The "seriously" is from this set, and the Christmas sentiment from Flourishes.

Stamps: My Favorite Things "And Then I Said", Flourishes Flourished Christmas.
Paper: The Paper Studio.
Ink: Colorbox Queues, Versamark.
Accessories: Black EP, Spellbinders, glitter, rhinestones, Prismacolor pencils/baby oil.
