Christmas Bug

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to attend my first crafting weekend retreat with One Crazy Stamper and Scrapbook Niagara! I had no idea what to take but I knew I had to take this super cute image from Stampingbella called "Christmas Bug". I had coloured it on Thanksgiving weekend back in October, and hadn't had a chance to get the card made. 

My son's girlfriend has a tan coloured VW Bug......so when I saw this stamp, I knew it was perfect for her Christmas card! 

After colouring my stamp with alcohol markers, I hand fussy cut it leaving a thin white edge. I added some silver sparkle pen to the ornaments on the tree and the car bumpers. I really wanted to use the licence plate die I had taken with me and used it as a place to add my sentiment. Some snowflake dies, Nuvo glitter drops, twine and enamel dots finish off my card.
