Merry Christmas Lady

This is a beautiful vintage image of a lady which I decided to give a strong colour treatment to.  It seems to work okay.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
CRAFT Challenge - Colour Inspiration

CHNC - Stamped Image (no digis)

Trimgym - Anything Goes

The paper comes from Trimgym.  The image is an acrylic stamp from Flonz.   I coloured using copic markers BG49, BG09, BG15, B000, E29, E25 plus some Stickles - Crystal.  I also added three small brown pearls to the corner of the image.   I have also added some chocolate brown grosgrain ribbon from American Crafts.

I have made a few cards this week using this colour combination.  I've just loaded the first one up to the CRAFT challenge and noticed only a few entries.  Considering three papers were available as freebies on the Trimgym blog, it is surprising.  Unless of course, everyone is even more last minute than me in getting their completed projects uploaded!!!
