Karen's Doodles Challenge 40 - Christmas

This week we have a new hostess, Dorte at Karen's Doodles Challenge blog and she has given us a theme challenge


Using my center step card template, I created this card using Karen's newest holiday image, Bigsby Candy Cane.  I began by sizing my image to fit my Nellie Snellen circle die, then I printed it onto Cryogen paper with my inkjet printer.  Copics used:
Bigsby - E41, E42, E43, R20
Hat and Candy Cane - E09
Ornaments - R23, E09, YG93
Pine - YG93
I used a Sand Spica Pen on the ornament tops.  The DP is from My Mind's Eye Holly Jolly collection.  I colored some ribbon with YR24, making the bow with my Bow Easy.  I added some Peel Off stickers dots and stripes for some extra bling.  Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches. 

Won't you please join in on the fun? You could win....

1st Place - 3 Digi stamps of your choice from Karen's Doodles
2nd Place - 2 Digi stamps of your choice from Karen's Doodles
3rd Place - 1 Digi stamps of your choice from Karen's Doodles

Sandy I love your step card. Bigsby is the only mouse I like and he is adorable. You are such a nut for detail with the Peel Off Stickers. Those details are what sets your cards above others.
