Got your shades handy?

Happy Thursday everyone. We're are now heading into the last several shopping days until Christmas and I hope you aren't stressing! It's hard to believe that Christmas is just two weeks away... 'why does this holiday always have a way of sneaking up on us! It does somehow, don't you think?

This card is made for the 10th challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil, hosted by our friend and December hostess, Lydia. This week we are to design a 'thank you' card. And, the sky's the limit as there's no sketch, color limitations, or other criteria.

I needed a departure from Christmas stuff.. so, I chose this darling image from Mo's Digital Pencil and some REALLY bright papers.. I know, it's very unlike me... but I was feeling like a wild and crazy person today! You might want to throw some shades on or squint as you look as it might be blinding!! Besides the bright colors, I used glittery flowers that my friend Dana gave me. So, in total, this is so unlike my clean and simple typical stuff.

This was done with a combination of Lyra and Prisma pencils as well as some Copics.

I hope that you are having a terrific day and are stress-free!  Thanks for stopping by and until next time, be safe in all you do.
