Purple Onion Christmas.....

Hello everyone: I just love little critter images and Purple Onion has some of the cutest, sweetest around. Easy to color and very economical since they come unmounted, which is just what I like.
Here is a card I made with a couple of this images, doing a bit of masking along the way, I will enter this card onto a few challenges at the end of this post.

Stamped this images onto Strathmore mixed media paper with Stazon black ink and colored them with SU markers. I added silver gel pen to the star and garland as well as the ribbon on the gift box.
I added a strip of silver glimmer paper to the side for added sparkle.
The sentiment is from a Power Poppy set called Merry Littles, this set is packed with adorable images and sweet sentiments.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

The sentiment is from a Power Poppy set called Spice it Up, the little gift box from Merry Littles.
