Holiday Cactus

A bit of an unusual image for Christmas time!  But having Christmas in summer time, this image appeals to me - although I can't say we have that many cactus around.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Doodle Pantry - Anything Goes
Craft Your Passion - Add Some Doodling (words and spirals)
2 Sisters Challenge - Not A Christmas Image
CHNC - Anything Christmas

I have used a paper from a paper pad and then doodled Merry Christmas all over it.  The image is from Doodle Pantry, coloured with copic markers YG17, YG11, G82, R29, Y15, and R02 and then Glossy Accents added over the baubles.  I doodled a spiral in each of the corners of the die-cut to reduce the amount of white space.  The die is a Spellbinders Lattice rectangle die.  I also added some red pearls from Sullivans.


  1. This is too sweet and so charming! Fabulous coloring, love that shine on the bulbs. Thanks for entering the Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge 40 and for using a Doodle Pantry illustration!

  2. Such a fun card and a great way to show that even the warm sunny places have Christmas joy and decorations as well. Though I love snow myself. Great card with great design. Thanks for playing with us at Doodle Pantry.
