Christmas Doves

 Hallo,
   Well I managed to get this card done in time for the challenge deadline. I wanted to do the doves in the release challenge colors from Flourishes - teal blues and brown. Check out the challenge here - www.flourishes.org/blog/
  I colored the dove image (all stamps from Flourishes) with copics - coloring one dove brown and one with light blue and a grayish teal. The holly leaves I did with greens and dark teal with the berries in the same teals as the light dove.
  I cut several layers with Spellbinders dies - the main image then the next layer in a dark blue teal from shimmery paper. The next layer is a green hued dark teal that is shimmery too and lastly the base layer is a shimmery navy blue.
  I accented the card with a gold mesh ribbon and a ribbon made of bluish teal sequined ribbon, some teal rhinestones and some gold pearl drops in the corners. I also edged all the layers in gold metallic pen.
   This card turned out even better than I had envisioned :) and another Christmas card added to the pile too :)
    All for today - Take Care
