From the Heart Progressive Image Challenge

Good Morning.  Thank you for stopping by little area of blog land.  I appreciate the time you take to stop and see what I have been creating.

The card I have for y'all today uses an image by Faith at From the Heart.  You have your choice this month of what image you would like to use.  If you played along with the challenge in November, you should have received an email enabling you to pick which image you wanted.  If you didn't play along, you can go the From the Heart store and if you buy $10 worth of products, you can receive it for free.  The two images you have to choose from are:
Christmas Digital Stamp                              Christmas Digital Stamp

Aren't they cute?  The first one is Candy Cane Anneke and the second one is  For the Birds.

I chose Anneke and this is the card I created:

I decided to color her dress and hat green so that it wouldn't overpower the candy cane.  I used my Crayola colored pencils and OMS to color Anneka.  The patterned papers are from MME.  I used a Tim Holtz die to cut out three rolled ribbon flowers using pieces of the same patterned paper and a piece of the Red Recollections card stock also used on the card.  I added some leaves from my stash and a cute little bauble charm from Prima.  I added some Evergreen Stickles to the center of the roses.  All of the fur parts of Anneke's hat, dress and boots were done with Deco Art's Glistening Snow Writer.  Mine has gotten a bit thick and will no longer come out of the tip so I used a tooth pick to place it where I wanted it.  It's not quite as dimensional as I would like it, but it gives the fur quite a bit of sparkle.

I hope y'all will give From the Heart's December challenge a try.  Everyone is a winner if they play along Faith's monthly progressive challenge.
