They come in 3's

Here's the first of another group of 3 cards I've made using the same image, just coloured differently. Its an absolutely stunning stamp from Whiff of Joy called Willow with Lantern. As most of you know by now, my middle child is called Willow so these stamps hold special meaning for me. It also helps that my Willow looks very similar, with her long wavy hair.

Image: Willow with Lantern from Whiff of Joy, coloured with promarkers: Blush and Baby Pink for her skin, Caramel, Cocoa and Umber for her hair, Pink Carnation and Fuchsia Pink for her dress,  Amethyst & Purple for her sash and shoe, Holly for the holly, Ruby for the berries, Primrose and Mango for the candlelight. I also covered the lantern with Sepia Accents.
I made the side-step card from papermania cardstock, adding panels of DCWV pink xmas papers. I cut the image out using Rach's out-of-bounds technique with an oval nestie, and matted onto some lilac core'dinations card cut with the oval scallop nestie in the cuttlebug.
I punched some Martha Stewart snowflakes from the lilac core'dinations card and added an iridescent plastic flower and tiny gold brad to each and finally the greeting is Papermania.

Here's her close-up...
