Christmas Card with Fluffy Little Animals

I wanted to use my new stamps from LOTV, and this week's Inkspirational sketch seemed to be a great choice as it allowed me to use all three of the images at the same time! I die cut the images using circle dies and attached them to panels of kraft. I used Promarkers for coloring, and I also decorated the images using red Stickles glitter glue, gold liquid pearls and Diamond Dust for sparkle (which  unfortunately doesn't show that well in the photo). The two DPs are from Landstoken Paperdesign. I used a Martha Stewart punch to make the border, dies from Marianne to make the poinsettia, some red berries, a LOTV sentiment tag stamp, red thread for stitching and two red pearls.

This card is for these challenges:
1) Inkspirational - #35 Sketch
2) A Gem of a Challenge - #95 Use 2 Backing Papers
3) Southern Girls - Warm Fuzzies
4) Inky Impressions - #123 Animals
5) Christmas Card Challenges - #40 Something New (stamps)
