Christmas Card # 4

Merry Christmas everyone.
I wanted to make this a simple card. I have this stamp set that I got with one of my magazine subscriptions and thought a photo would make a great Christmas card. I waited until the next morning to take these picture so you could really see the detail.
I used craft cardstock that I got a Walmart as my base and used my snowflake embossing folder. I then took Brilliance Moonlight White Ink and wiped it over the embossing so you could really see the snowflakes.
 I used so white scrap cardstock and first stamped the lady in Memento Black ink and then stamped her again on to some masking paper so I could use my Distress inks for the background (Tattered Rose on top and Tea Dye on the bottom). I took the mask off and colored her face (E00, E02) and hair (E15, E19) with my copic markers. I then added a small strip of white where the to colors meet to give it a baseboard look. I then paper pieced on her cloths with red and green cardstock (I used Brilliance rocket red to stamp out her shirt and belt and Brilliance pearl thyme for her skirt).
 I used the same paper and ink for the tree. I had some pre cut stars that fit I just colored them yellow and then used some clear rhinestone stickers on the tree. The star on top is from the Doodlebug Halloween Parade collection. I then just used son white pearls for her earring and necklace. I took my silver Wink of Stella pen and used in on the ornament and a little on her shirt and belt. I used my Lawn fawn Say Cheese die to cut out the photo and the just glued my image to the back. I used balck ink for the sentiment as well which is from the same stamp set.  
After everything was dry I used foam dot to attach the picture to the card and then just used to silver and white ribbon on the edge.
I left the inside blank and I also did not cover up the embossing on the inside I thought it looks really cool.
That's it. Just a fun card using stuff I have never tried before and I love the way it turned out.
