Ugly is Awesome

Hello, hello...

So loving all the Christmas cards I am whipping out and we haven't even hit the half way mark in the year. woohoo!!!

Playing in a few challenges with this fun card.
Who doesn't love an ugly sweater?!?

Using a stencil for the background, I first eBrushed it with red, left the stencil in place then lathered on some Creative Medium Iridescent Green...Just look at that shine! Thought it needed a little something, something, so I spritzed on a little Fireworks Cottage Ivy.
Snow flake was cut with Silhouette , then inked in silver.
Sweater was colored with Copics, fussy cut and White Amplify! was added to his hat and beard.
