Christmas is Getting Closer!

With only 38 days left until Christmas I decided to start making my Christmas cards! Its later than I normally start but my health has held me back this year. Never the less I still plan to have all cards made and sent by the end of the first week of December! Hopefully I'm not being too optimistic...
Anyway, here is the card I made last night:

I used Stamps and paper from the Honey and Hugs collection and coloured them in with Copic markers and Promarkers. I added subtle shading to the deer and presents, and accentuated the eye and dots on her scarf with a white gel pen. I added Sakura clear glaze to the dots on her scarf and the dots on her back. Green and silver glitter was used for baubles on the tree, and I inked the 'Happy Christmas' words with a red ink pad to help them stand out a bit more.

Here is a closer image of the deer and tree.
