Light Up the Holidays

Today's Christmas card is one I made for a Sketch Challenge in one of my card swap groups. Here's the completed card using Newton's Nook, Holiday Mischief.

 Here's the sketch that each of us followed.

I started by stamping the cat in tangled lights  on cardstock.  I colored the image with my Copic markers, which are listed below.  Then I die cut it with a standard circle die, and cut the green solid mat with the die that is up one size.

I pulled the vertical strips from my scraps pile, being sure one of them included cats.   Each strip was then secured to the 5" card base.  After deciding where the image would fit, then I cut the white rectangle piece and stamped the sentiment centered in the open space.  Once it was added to the card base, then I secured the circle image to the center of the card,  overlapping the rectangle slightly. Lastly I added a Christmas tree brad at the sentiment to complete my design.
