Time for Merry Little Christmas Challenge!

 Hello and welcome! I'm sharing my first DT make for the Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog today.
I've used a Beccy's Place digi from her Christmas Goose set, with a scrap of stash patterned paper and green SU card. Hope nobody dies of shock, but I went with a CAS design! 
I chose this Splitcoaststampers sketch for my layout design.
I colored the goose with Promarkers and used my glitter pens and markers to give twinkles to his necklace of lights. Even if he's grumpy, isn't he cute? I have a bit of a phobia about stringing and unstringing lights so I can relate. 😊 The sentiment from the set is accented with a few bulbs from Impression Obsession Christmas Lights die cuts colored with gel pens, Promarkers and glitter markers.
Inside, a Beccy's printed sentiment from the set on a Spellbinders Labels 10 die cut and a snippet of an I/O lights die leftover from a previous project.
More of the patterned paper on the back (forgot long ago who made). Cut an MFT Chevron Stripe zig zag die out of green scrap, and the siggie I use.

Close-up of the glittery twinkles from the light bulb die cuts!
And final view. Come join in the fun at MLCCB and get your holiday cards and projects going! Click on the link and check out the Playing Guidelines on the right sidebar for all the deets.
Thanks for the visit today, stay safe and have a good weekend! XOX

Sentiment is a Christmas Song Title
I used Obsession Obsession Christmas Lights dies on the front sentiment

That goose wrapped in the Christmas lights made me laugh out loud! He looks SO unimpressed (as do many people as they struggle wth their own lights during that season...) Adorable :)

Hi, I am one of the newest designer on the MLCC team. This card is so cute and fun. Hoping he get those lights on the light soon. At least he is ahead by 6 months. Great design and colors.

Love it Aimeslee!! You did a wonderful job colouring the image, gotta love the bright red hat and striped socks. Great idea to add glitter to all the little lights too, it gives them the perfect amount of twinkle! I like the design you chose, the sketch is nice and simple and gives a fantastic end result.
