Merry Christmas to Jessie

This is for today's WAYS TO USE IT CHALLENGE # 562 - Bring on the Bling, Wednesday's SKETCH CHALLENGE # 571 and Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 564 - Rags to Riches. I used copiic coloring and dry embossing for my 2 techniques and the holly panel started out months ago as a 4 1/4 x 5 /12 panel. I trimmed it today to fit the sketch. I have been waiting for ever to ink up this darling set and today was the day. I stamped the image in momento tuxedo black then trimmed and colored with copics. I added stickles to the star, garland and dots on her collar. My focal image was matted on real red and then adhered to the wild wasabi panel. I embossed the wild wasabi panel iwth the holly and berries embossing folder and colored the berries before matting the focal panel. My white card base will aid in the inside sentiment to be decided before giving to my darling hubby. HE has a black lab/pit bull mix MUT!! I stress that it is HIS dog since he has to remain tied or fenced due to his irratic snapping and bitting behavior. God was with our granddaughter earlier this year with this MUT took at bit at her face and made a huge gash under her eye. The vet that we took him too for his next check up stated "no GOD was with the dog because if he were mine I would have put him down right then". My sensitive dh just can not seem to do that so we will see how keeping him tied and fenced goes. Anyway bc he loves this dog so much I had to make his card this year with this set that I bought just for him. I did finished the envelope by stamping in momento tuxedo black and will do the inside tonight. Hope you like it.
