Deck the Halls!

Hello! This is the card I planned on posting Monday, then Tuesday.... and here it is Wednesday already! Finally the card is done and photographed! Thanks for coming by!
I also wanted to take part in letting you know (if you don't already!) that there is a new challenge blog for Magnolia-licious stamps with a new Design Team! There will be TWO challenges a month that will be in addition to the challenges on the Mag Highlites blog! The very FIRST was posted today and here is the LINK to the blog with ALL the details! Hope you can get on board with this new team! They are AWESOME!
This card uses Lightning Edwin (#161) from the Merry Christmas 2010 collection over at Magnolia-licious. He was lots of fun to color! I added stickles to his lights and then Glossy Accents on top of that-so there's sparkle and shine!
For his skin I uysed E000, E00, E11 and R30
The browns are E33, E31, E25 and E37
Blue jeans are B41, B95, B45, B99
Green sweater YG11, YG13 and YG17
I kept the rest pretty simple with a little stitching, sponging and embellishments! Thanks for coming by to see what I've been up to!
Hope you have a great day!
Cheryl
