FMS 158 Beautiful Joy

When I saw this fun sketch from Jen Timko, I knew I wanted to make a Christmas card but was trying to think of an image to fill the space. Grabbed the Cardinal but saw my Sahara Sand sitting by the cutter and decided to try stamping and coloring on that for a different effect other than white or vanilla. I like the way it made it look a little natural and I did not even have to color my friend's face in here!
I used Blendies and added more textured by embossing the little bit of Cherry Cobbler sticking out and placing some Natural ribbon around. The background DSP looks like a sweater to me some it is full of texture! 
Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed Friday!
