Christmas Card Challenge #1 - Color Challenge

Hi friends!  We are starting a new term over at the Christmas Card Challenge blog.  Today is our first challenge.   The first challenge is a color challenge.

These are great colors and different for Christmas.
I chose to use the colors but also the photo as my inspiration.  I was looking through my Christmas stamps and found this one.  It's never been inked (of course!) and I thought it would work nicely for this challenge.  I colored it with copic markers and added silver liquid pearls.  The word was die cut five times and stacked.  I added glossy accents to make it shiny.  I didn't save the dots above the "i" so I just dotted it with a silver liquid pearl.  I added some baker's twine and tied it with a bow. 

You can see more inspiration on the Christmas Card Challenge blog and these blogs.  But first, here are our new members for this term .
And the rest of the team.
