Jolly Happy Soulman...

 
Whew... finished indexing and cutting out my stamps this weekend so I could play!  How's this for an uber-cute & simple Holiday card?!  Don't you just love that old school page-boy style hat? :)  

I KNOW!

After I had finished coloring this cayootie patootie, I just wanted him to be center-stage... so no other cardstock or patterned paper.  I did add just a bit o' oomph by embossing a few score lines to frame the sentiment.


How's about those loverly glittery pink wings?  :)  They make me smile.

Stamps:  Merriest Wishes

Paper:  White UltraSmooth cardstock

Ink:  Noir Palette

Other:  Scor-Pal, Crystal Stickles, Prismacolors w/ mineral oil

How's that for a SHORT list o' supplies?!  I'm thinking this would make a really cute place card... just down-size it a bit, maybe cut him out from the bottom of the wings up, and score at that point so that he would pop up above the fold line... OMG, how cute... if only I had formal holiday dinners!

What do you think?!
