LOTV~~ UnTraditional CHRISTMAS CARD!!!

Hey Hey another beauty for you today!!  I just love having time off of REAL work--but I have to member then the bills won't get paid :)

Got out my LOTV stamps and cut them apart--decided to ink this cutsey puppy up so he could mail his letter to SANTA!!  LOL
ENJOY~~~~ Create4Fun Sketch below

Colored image with Copics.  Added snow with Deco Art Snow writer and then on top mailbox and on ground added Twinklets~~SUPERB!!!!
Base of Easel card
This flower is on front of card:  This is first time I tried this but many of you probly done this already :)
First I spritzed prima flowers (3) with water and then crumpled up--carefully uncrumpled alittle and let dry. Attached them with brad and then spritzed with Sparkle Shimmer Spritz and attached a fancy button!! I really like the dimension and softness it brought to the prima flower :)
This is base embellies:  Prima flower made the same as above but used Paper studio fuzzy brad!!
Sentiment by Whimsy and Vintage label by SU--traced a few swirls with blue AtYou spica pen for pizzazz :)  Also spritzed using frosted shimmer spritz

These pics (above and below) show Sparkle, Shine, Shimmer and dimension on the card!!

Such lovely colours and that flower is amazing... thanks for sharing how you did that.

I came across your blog while I was at Leigh's.

I love making flowers, too. Am trying to better myself at roses.

I sell cards for charity but for the past few times have been just posting the cards - thanks to Leigh.

I am going to become your follower after seeing that lovely flower.
