Christmas Candy for OWH

Good morning everyone! I have a special Christmas card to share with you today. This is just one of the cards I will be sending to OWH. If you haven't heard about OWH yet...It's a group of cardmakers that support our nation's armed forces by sending blank greeting cards for them to write in and send back home to their loved ones. You can find more information on making and sending in cards here! ...and Michelle Perkett Studios challenge this week is featuring OWH! This is one of Michelle's birthday images that I turned into a Christmas card! I colored the image with Copics and then added a ton of glossy accents! Two of my all time favorite combos! The sentiment is from Inkadinkado. Added my brads, buttons and a bow...and there you have it! Thank you for stopping by and don't forget to check out the new challenge over at MPS!

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:
Bah Humbug-favorite medium (Copics & gloss accents)
Christmas Stampin'-Brad or Eyelet
Cowgirl's Sunday-Christmas cards for OWH
Pile it On-Cards for OWH
Sentimental Sundays-Christmas card for OWH
Stamptacular Sunday-Sketch+ card for OWH
