Merry Monday#213.....

Hello everyone: I'm sure all of you are super happy Merry Monday is back from their Summer brake, this time they have a fabulous inspiration photo for us to create a pretty card to add to our Christmas stash, here is mine.

My image is from Lili of the Valley and it's a cute one, I love this little bear hanging stockings on the bird feeder, how sweet is that?! I stamped this image onto Canson water color paper with Stazon black ink and colored it with just the Real Red SU marker, I was a bit doubtful about how this was going to look all in red but, after I was done, I was very happy with how it came out.
I added a bit of Dazzling Diamonds to the puffs and the rim of the hat and also, to the star on top of the feeder, I truly wanted to stick wit the colors of the inspiration photo, which are Red, White and a hint of Black.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

The sentiments both in front and inside are from my stash.
I'm linking this card to this challenges.
