Christmas Is Coming

Oh I am so excited to share this new image from Sheena Douglass - Christmas Is Coming ,this is one of my favorite cards I have colored in a long time
I pulled out my Spectrum Noir markers, and had a grand time aging this old truck...I had to use a few other alcohol markers to achieve the blue I wanted.
Isn't this a fabulous Christmas time image? My favorite is the tree in the back of the truck...I added some Stickles to the tree so it would look like snow glistening.
I decided to double mat the image twice with just a simple card stock and simple pattern.
 I used the matching sentiment and love the font and words...just perfect for this image.
Oh yea I know I want to make some more of these for Christmas cards to send, what do you think?
Have you started to think about holiday cards yet? You have to check out the many spectacular images available for holiday cards.
Thanks for checking out my design today, so glad I could share with you.
