Holiday Spirit Card

Hello everyone :-D  

Today I want to share with you a Holiday Spirit Card, my final card of the year 2014.

I colored image two weeks ago, but finished card just yesterday. I CASEd my Reach for the Stars Card. Card layout for my both cards, this one and CASEd one, was {heart} sketches sketch089 with a twist by Imke Ludvig.

Card dimensions are 143 mm x 98 mm (5 5/8" x 3 7/8").

I used From the Heart Stamp 'Christmas Spirit Birdbrain' digital stamp set, which includes funny image and four sentiments.

This is Stamp of the Month December 2014. From the Heart Stamps Stamp of the Month Challenge is progressive challenge and everyone is a winner. Faith generously gives a digital stamp of the month to everyone who joined previous challenge. I didn´t play last month, in November, but did get my for free. This was image I choose as December Blog Hop Winner at From the Heart Stamps.

I colored background with light blue colored pencil dust. I have learned this technique from my 3rd grade teacher. I don´t know how that technique is called, if there is any name. :-D
