Warm and Cozy Boy

Today's card is stamped on Pure Luxury Ivory in Memento Black Ink and colored with Copics (TIP: Warm Grays are beautiful on the Ivory for shadows). I used "Festive Frame" and this sweet little boy is from "Warm and Cozy Christmas"( I haven't found a holiday image I don't like in this frame window yet!) and this image reminds me of all the Christmases we've taken my sons to choose and cut our tree :)

I kept all the markers for coloring the boy and tree the same palette as the frame: 2 reds, 2 greens and 2 browns. I trimmed the frame with some postage scissors and popped it up onto a Tan Leather base. Last I stamped "Joy" on an oval punched tag (larger rim is All Spruced Up) and added a little button from the Gina K Holiday Assortment.

Have a great day, thank you for visiting! blog hop coming up!!
