# christmas card # echo park

Christmas Card used LOTV James in the snow

Hello....My second post of the day :)
I have to change my plan slightly...I mentioned previously that I would be sharing some of my recent Christmas cards that I made next week. After I see the LOTV challenge blog, I decided ok  must start showing today because this month challenge is Christmas in August which is perfect for my cards. ^_^ Hoping to win the first prize ^_^ or any of the prize.
I have made a promise that this year I have to use most of my unused stamps from LOTV. So for the first batch I picked up few James bear from LOTV and colour them. I have managed to coloured 10 of them and now in the process to make it into card ^_^. I left with 3 more..yay!
So I will be sharing one of it today.
To be frank I haven't shopped for any Christmas embellishment for this year and I am hopping no need because I plan to wait till end of the year or early next year when shops start to do some clearing by giving a big discount..i would say that is the wise step.
So for this card, I am using my old pattern paper from echo park, I think it is 2011 series. still loving the classic and original colour for Christmas season.
 I stamped James in the snow and coloured him with my colour pencils. Surprisingly I love how it is turn out. ^_^. I guess I am pretty good at colour pencils than other media.
Adding few dots used gel pens on the face and body to highlight the darker area.. I think I would say he looks good with all of those dots ^_^. 

Since I will be making a lot of Christmas card with similar image, therefore I want to have a little fun with the card fold. ^_^
And here is a little close up of the James the bear.
Would love to enter this card for
LOTV Challenge- Christmas in august
