Not a Christmas card

Hi everyone.  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your families. 
Today I wanted to share 2 cards I created with you.  This first one is "Sunkissed" by Karen Middlenton. You can also find her on Sheet #18, Plate #194.
I added 2 layers of ribbon ruffled behind the image and added a Scallop Spellbinders die between the 2 ribbon layers. I also added some flowers that I have had forever.
I colored her with copics then went over her hair with a black Prismacolor pencil, added chalk around the image and sprayed it with glimmer mist.

For this one I used an image by Anna Marine called "Dark Thoughts", and she can be found on Sheet #5, Plate #196.  I used some Prima paers, fringe and used a Spellbinders pendant die around the image, that I cut 2 in half as added around the image.

Here is a close up of the image. Her face has so much more detail in person.  Sometimes it is so hard to capture all the details in pictures.
Here are the red copics I used to color her.
I also went over all most of the folds with a black Prismacolor Pencil.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderful day.
