Papertake Weekly - A Christmas Cracker......

A good afternoon to you.
It's time for the Papertake Weekly challenge and this week we would like to see
"A Christmas Cracker".
This could be literally a cracker or how I have interpreted it as a cracker of a card!
To encourage you to join in this week we are sponsored by Wendy's Digital Delights

I have used a beautiful image by Lili of the Valley called "Carol Singers" and teamed it up with my new papers from My Minds Eye - Lost & Found Christmas.
I think the card looks like a present with the bow at the top.

Here's a close up (click on the image for a bigger picture)

As always I have used Copics to colour the image.
Greens - YG11, G21, G99
Reds - R17, R29, R59
Browns - E50, E31, E57
Yellows - Y00, Y21 & ?
Greys - W1, W2
I also added glitter to the hats and snow.
Embellishments - Organza ribbon, wire coated in black paper, flower brad, small tag and a sentiment from Kanban.

This card has been made for a commission I had for 5 cards. I haven't started my christmas cards as yet and time is running out!

I hope you can join us this week.
Thanks for stopping by today.
