My Fantastic Followers:)

Today I decided to get a head start on some Christmas cards and I chose the very pretty
 Kenny K's "Mistletoe" as my subject. And I just loved colouring her and I couldn't stop at one, so I coloured her 3 times to make three different cards...
Here is my first card.....
I chose to colour her with traditional colours and added some whimsy tags made of acetate. (I got the acetate idea from Annika who makes the most beautiful cards)
 I also added a red bow with a little silver Santa sleigh charm.

Next is Mistletoe in Green 
For this card I used holographic paper and cut out a sparkly lime green circle and added some diamond stickles, around the circle and the border. I stamped the sentiment with black stazon and because of the holographic paper it really gave dimension to the sentiment but it's a little hard to see. I also wanted to keep it plain and simple.
On the last one...It's my favourite (maybe because it's blue lol)
I used lots of star dust stickles, speciality paper and large and small snowflakes with some added diamonds.
Now I would like to show her off (well all 3 of them)
