Non Traditional Christmas.....

Hello again: This is a second post for today, I had a bit of time to finish this card to add to my Christmas stash, I don't think I have enough yet. I will link it to a few challenges at the end of this post.

This image is from a Power Poppy set called Cozy Cupfuls, super cute images that you can color any way you want to. Stamped it on water color paper with Stazon black ink and colored it with Sakura Koi water colors and SU markers and an aqua painter.
The pattern papers are from Lili of the Valley (retired), the sentiment from the set.

This is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

The border is done with "Bordering Blooms" from SU (retired), the sentiment and little gift from Power Poppy's 2 sets, Merry Littles and Ponsettia 

I'm playing along with this challenges.
