Use Your Favourite Embellishments for Winter Wonderland Challenge for the 6th of September, 2019

At Winter Wonderland this month, we are hosted by Helen, who has chosen the theme:
Use Your Favourite Embellishments!

So here is my card:

Please remember that it is Christmas projects only and they must include the theme.

Our sponsor for this challenge is:

Everything that you ever wanted to know about Bugaboo Stamps - a short essay!

As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of paper-crafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was seven years ago.  

Today, Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images and we're still growing!  From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful, all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more, to create your paper projects.

Jodie works hard to provide new releases and freebies every week!

And the prize on offer for our lucky winner is:

$12 gift code, to spend in the Bugaboo Stamps store

So back to my card:
I digitally printed Make It Snappy Merry Christmas Ornaments on to X-Press It blending card, which I then cut out using my paper cutter. 
I have coloured the image with the following Copics markers:
  • baubles - BG72, BG75, BG78, V12, V15, V17, RV63, RV66, RV09, B12, B14, B16, YG13, YG25, YG07, Wink of Stella for sparkle!
  • stars - YR12, YR16, YR27, Wink of Stella for sparkle!
  • outline - BG78
I have added some Wink of Stella to all the other parts of the image, including the snowflakes and sentiment and then adhered the coloured image on to a white square card from Envelope Solutions.

Here is a close-up of the colouring:

I will add this card to the following challenges:
