Mistletoe Kisses

More Christmas cards to make. Someone just ordered 3 more - and were specific that they had to be 8"x8". Back to the Cubbyhole I go. Feminine without being too glittery - here goes.
The traditional festive colours of red and green was my first one. I suppose in many peoples eyes, Christmas IS red, green and white. The colours of holly, ivy, fir and mistletoe - the natural decorative items in days gone by.
I chose the image "Mistletoe Fairy" from AuroraWings. Coloured with promarkers with a drop of glossy accents on the mistletoe berries.

The card itself was made with the sketch by Tuesday Morning Sketches as inspiration.

The main paper is DCWV with a MME panel. All matted on pearlised dark green card with TH leaves from the offcuts.
 A shiny red satin ribbon with pearly clasp
 and a little Die'sire sentiment on pearlised white card 

One down - two to go.

I'd like to enter this card into the challenges at
Tuesday Morning Sketches - their sketch this week
Through The Purple Haze - Favourite Christmas colours (this is another one)
Passion for PromarkersMega Christmas challenge - include a sentiment
Craftitude - Anything goes/Christmas Sparkle
