Sharing a Biscuit

I have another Christmas card to share with you .. .. I reckon I need to make at least one a week between now and the Festive Season if I'm not to panic at the last minute!  This little cutie is a Nellie's Choice Dawn clear stamp and was originally coloured up last year .. .. so I just added a few extra touches with my Copics and a little inking with Spun Sugar DI, plus of course some festive sparkle.  Finding a matching pp was a bit of a struggle but keeping to my resolution not to go buying any more, I made do with this little piece of polka dot paper and embossed some white card with my CB snowflake die and adding more ink to match.

I got a little bit carried away with my die cuts and more or less covered up the polka dot organza ribbon in the process .. .. you can still see the bow though.  All the dies are by Marianne Design and the embossed areas are coloured with the Spun Sugar DI - here's the list: of dies I used:

text greeting LR0225
mini poinsettias LR0142
straight poinsettia LR0122
snowflake doilly with waste hearts added at the side LR0185
twigs LR0245
