My Favourite Colour!

Another Christmas card from me today...but at least it's not white! Inspired by the Lili of the Valley Challenge, I've used my favourite colours - aqua, teal & turquoise. The image is 'Presents for Two' (of course by Lili of the Valley), and I coloured it with watercolour pencils, then added some 'Crystal Ice' Stickles to the fur trim on his hat. The papers are a mixture of My Mind's Eye ('Countdown to Christmas') and We R Memory Keepers ('Hippity Hoppity'). The ribbon is recycled from a Liz Earle Christmas gift package, and the sentiment is a Cuddly Buddly stamp.
