First Christmas Cards

I was asked to make a couple of Christmas cards for some little people's first Christmas!
This one uses a Day for Daisies image which I think is an absolute cutie.  It's coloured with Mirage Pens and gently twinkled with Glamour Dust. The background is embossed with a Sheena Douglass folder and the mistletoe is from a Sizzlet die.
Time out Challenge - Embossing with the optional twist of sparkle
For this one I used a Lili  of the Valley image which I altered slightly to change the beanie hat into a Santa hat. I masked off part of the stamp before inking and after stamping drew the tail and bobble on the hat with a black fine pen. It's coloured  with Mirage pens. The embossing on this one is from a Sizzix folder.

I hope both little ones have a wonderful first Christmas!
