Inspired Stamps Christmas Card Showcase

Hello and welcome here on the first of September!  I've been having issues with the photos on my older posts showing up and I'm trying to figure out the problem, no luck yet why it's doing this so if you have any helpful info please let me know.

This month the Inspired Stamps DT are showcasing Christmas stamps!  For us cardmakers, getting an early start is essential because before you know it, Christmas will be here and time for family and friends takes over.

Card Size:  4" x 6"
I used a few different stamps set for my card.  The girl is Hymn Girls: March.  I tried my hand at colouring on Kraft cardstock using Primacolor pencils.  Next time I'll add a white undertone to the dress...it's much redder in real life but I think it would pop more coloured on top of white. I love how you can make her winter-ish by giving her boots to wear!

The holly is from Flower Value Set, it's also coloured using Primacolor pencils.  The sentiment is from the 1" Circle Sentiments.

Inside:
For the inside sentiment and cross I used Blessed Little Chrismtas.

Prismacolor's Used:
Face - 924, 927, 939
Dress - 924
Boots - 935
Cross - 937, 944, 946
