Twas The Night Before Christmas

Hello again.   Imagine - two posts in one day!       I wanted to  post my card I created for today's challenge  # 12 from MarkerPop Blog.    The Challenge is to use Deep Red!    They are also offering a prize of $10.00 to a comment winner as well!    Can't beat that! LOl  The challenge run until December 16th!

THE PRIZE: A Stampavie Stamp, winner’s choice!
One entry will be chosen at random to receive our prize. Three additional entries will be chosen for the Top 3 based on their amazing coloring skills. The prize winner and top three can all proudly post their brag buttons on their blogs for the world to see! Entries are due on Sunday, December 16th at noon EST.

I used a wonderful image from Tina Wenke Clear Stamp from Stampavie called Santa With Children.  I absolutely love her images.   They always bring a smile to my face!  

I could hardy wait to try out my new background technique using Spelbinder Nestabilities.    I am taking a class from My Creative Classroom.  I just love the class.   This is lesson 1 - intermediate.

I am linking this card with the following challenges:

I hope you enjoyed this card.   I will not try to name the Copics I used!   They cover my entire table! LOL.    I will say I used die's, embossing, and Copic on paper blending, tip to tip blending and texturizing with a colorless blender!

Have a wonderful day.   Remember.....   we have a surprize blog hop tomorrow so stop back and join in our hop for great prizes!
