Shh... It's a secret!

I'm being a bit naughty in posting this card, but honestly I can't help myself it's almost Christmas and I've been dying to post this for about 3 weeks! This card was made for the Kit and Clowder card exchange that I took part in this year. I hadn't touched my copics in quite some time when I started on this image so I was thrilled with how it turned out! I was in a bit of a rush trying to get this card done (not that it made it go any faster... ) and ended staying up until something like 3am in the morning finishing it.

Isn't it so pretty! :) I tried so hard to make it just a red and white card but I ended up adding the green onto the holly flourish.

And close up!
I love how that gold spec ended up on her eye, the big snowflake is covering a spot where my heat gun burnt the paper. Oops! 

I used several items on this card for the first time that have just been sitting in my stash doing nothing but collecting dust. The Post Card stamp is from a Close to my Heart set that I "just had to have" several years ago. The round flourish is actually a buckle die by Memory Box, again something purchased several years ago at a show. The deer die cut and the large snowflake were purchased last year.

Products used on this card: Simply Sassy stamp 'Seasons Greetings', Ranger - liquid pearls, Stampendous - shabby white embossing enamel, Memory Box - Ringed Buckle, Impression Obsession - Deer Trio, Martha Stewart - boarder punch, Spellbinders - Label (#???) Dies, Wild Rose Studio - Holly Flourish die, Close to my heart - Stamp(?), red Glitter paper, red rhinestones, Tim Holtz - Mowed Lawn, and Copics.
(^I'll try and fill in some of the missing names tomorrow)

So that's about it for now, I'm off to finish a few more last minute cards!
