Christmas Card with a Tag

This is the Christmas Card and Tag that I made for Maria's weekly challenge. I have been practicing with my Prisma Color Pencils almost daily. I'm starting to get the hang of blending the colors with the Gamasol, but I still have a long way to go. Maria does an excellent job with these pencils, the colors really stand out! After I was done coloring in my stamped image, the colors still didn't "pop" so I colored in some of the areas with my markers.

cardstock: Bazzill and Papertrey Ink White

stamp: Stampabilities

sentiment: Stampabilities

I also used my Cuttle Bug, the Snowflake folder for the background. Prisma Color Pencils, Gamasol, markers, Sakura Quickies Gel Pen and Martha Stewart's fine crystal glitter. The Christmas Striped Ribbon, came from my LSS, I wish I knew who manufactured it. I simply brought two yards of it and I hope to get more later. The other ribbons are from my scrap stash.
