Favorite Holiday

Today for Sparkle's Christmas Card challenge we were to select our favorite holiday set and make a card. That honestly was hard for me! I do love alot of my holiday sets, so had to sit back and ponder before I got to work. I have a few TAC sets that I adore because they work so nicely for cards, and scrapbook pages. Two of my favorites are Holiday Magic, and Simply Christmas. They also work well together. Makes it that much nicer, right? I do believe both are retiring this year, and if it's not both, I am for certain Holiday Magic is going bye bye. I also love an angel line from Stampendous. I think they have retired as well. So, I grabbed from those to place to make my card today. The swirly sentiment is from Holiday Magic, the ornament is from Simply Christmas, and the image is Stampendous. I used versamark, and detailed silver embossing powder on the TAC parts. The image was colored with copics. The paper is DCWV Christmas stack from last year. I love the mellow side of this card. I don't use blues often, but the paper was so pretty, I just had to use it. The cardstock base is from PTI.

Copics: face Eooo, B85, girl clothes:B39, B45, B95,B93, snowman: BV31, YR69, C1B32, B97 E37, hair:E37
Other supplies: Martha punch, dew drops, nesties, stickles, fun flock with glitter.

Sigh...I really need to sign up to be an angel - just keep procrastinating! Mama angel, Shirley keeps asking!!! Maybe soon...GREAT card!
