Meljen's Designs and I knew when I won this digi it would be my husbands Christmas card. After coloring it with Copics I fussy cut, covered with Versa Mark, covered with Ranger Holographic embossing powdered and embossed, you can see it better on the close-up. It added just the right amount of sparkle! I used my Cuddlebug dots for the background, and Nesting eyelet square on the K& Company Papers. Eyelet and ribbons from my stash. I hope he enjoys his card Christmas morning!
