Merry Monday #49 Merry and bright

Hello there,
well this is going to be short and sweet tonight as its been a busy week and I need to get to bed and I want to get my card posted in this week's Merry Monday challenge which will wrap up in a few hours. This week it was a sketch.

And here is what I came up with.

I added a lot of texture into this one but I think in the end it worked (I wasn't sure for a while!). I coloured the image on the front with copics (I wanted that strong and vibrant) and the inside one with inks and blender pen (for a softer watermark effect) and both were sparkled up with dazzling diamonds. I must admit I find it hard to make a christmas card and not add sparkle ;) OK that's enough detail my bed is calling my name!

Thanks for visiting,
