Last Christmas Card of the Season???

I managed to complete one last Christmas card that will go into my stash for next year. My card production has slowed a bit since I was given a nasty cold for Christmas. I do have a bit of time off from work next week, so I am looking forward to getting my crafty groove back.

For this card I used a digital image I purchased from Your Next Stamp (by Omni Designs) called Whispering Merry Christmas.

I had a lot of fun colouring the bunny with my Copic markers. For the little bird, I added a bit of Glitter Ritz fine white glitter to the trim of the hat.

I decorated the inside with patterned paper and used a 3x4 tag from the Simple Stories Snap Christmas for the sentiment.

Image: Digital image from Your Next Stamp by Omni Designs "Whispering Merry Christmas"
Paper: Doodlebug "Home for the Holidays" and "North Pole"
Dies: Nestabilities Postage stamp, MFT Dainty Bows
