Winter Blues

Good Morning Bloggers!
A second card from me & it's not even breakfast time yet! Lol!
This is my post for The Crafting Cafe if you'd like to see my
post for Just Inklined, please scroll down.
The theme over at The Crafting Cafe this month is 
I have used an image from our sponsor is LEJ Designs.
She's called Unhappy Angel.
I can understand why she's not so happy & feeling a little blue, she
only gets out once a year & she's stuck atop the Christmas tree!
I'll leave the rest to your imagination!
At least she's warm & cosy indoors though, especially with all those lights!

Quite a simple card. I coloured the image with a mix of Flexmarkers
& Promarkers, trying to use as many different blues as possible.
I then added some Glossy Accents to the lights & her eyes!
I have to say here eyes look a little odd in the photo as the
light is shining from above! I did intend to take my card to work so
I could get some daylight photo's at lunchtime but silly me forgot!
I had to use my lamp which isn't that great!
Santa if you're listening???? lol

I added some twine, a couple of little jingly bells & some ribbon.
The glittery reindeer is punched out with my latest purchase!
Cute isn't it!
I forgot to mention the little de-bossed Christmas Tree border
& the little sentiment banner from my stash.

Here's the inside of the card!
