Visions of Sugarplums

This is my DT card for Mo's challenge #9 this week. We were to make a Christmas card for someone special using traditional Christmas colors. I chose to make this for my 6 year old granddaughter, who, along with her cousin and brother, certainly makes every day a little sweeter for her Pa and Mimi!
The stocking is from Mo's Digital Pencil, of course,  and the sweets are from a coloring book page. I used several shades of red, green and gold Copics to color the images and gold and silver Spica pens to add a touch of glitz. The sentiment is computer-generated. I used mounting tape to pop up both the main image panel and the sweets. I put the white cs through the Cuttlebug, using two embossing folders. The satin ribbon covers the blank spot  where they come together.

I hope you'll make a card for someone special in your life and enter it in the challenge this week. We'll be looking forward to your visit!
