Partridge in a Pear Tree Christmas

 Happy Monday to you! Hope this week brings you joy. 
I used a Power Poppy digi image and sentiments for my focal image on this Christmas card. I colored the background using the Pencil Over Marker Technique with a Zig Clean Color marker and a Prisma blue metallic pencil on top. The image was colored with various Sakura Starlight glitter gel pens. The DCWV card stocks were leftover scraps in my stash. I rounded all corners with punches, cut the circles with Spellbinders Classic Circle dies and the holly/berries were cut with an Avery Elle die and were already cut and colored in my stash. 
I chose the current Creative Sketchy Girls Sketch Challenge sketch for my 4x6" card design. 
A Stamplorations sentiment stamped with Majestic Blue Versafine ink inside...
And the back using more of the DCWV designer paper and card stock mat as on the front, with an I/O stamped siggie.

A couple of close-up shots to try to show all of the glittery shine coming off this card.
And final view. Thanks for visiting today and stay safe! XOX
