Kissing Under the Mistletoe, Crafty Sentiments

Hello all my crafty friends!  I have a special Christmas card to share with you all today made using the most adorable stamp called Kissing Under the Mistletoe.  She is part of the Lollipop Dream- Its The Season Collection.  You can find her HERE.

I used designer papers from DCWV, the Four Seasons Stack.  The holly dies are a set from Spellbinders.  I fought with those dies all morning!  They are new and kept sticking and ripping.  I think what helps with these intricate dies is to leave the first cut stuck in the die.  If I left some paper  in them the other cuts would come out more easily.  The sentiment is a clear stamp from my stash as well as the ribbon.  The bling is Recollections.  Here are some more views of the card...


Here is a closer look at the stamp...

I colored her using my Graph'it Markers.  All those pleats on her dress were a blast to color!  
Here are my color combos used:
skin: 4125, 4115, 4180, 3120/ 4135
hair: 3110, 3120, 3125, 3150, 3180
red: 5210, 5215, 5240, 5270
blue: 7109, 7110, 7115, 7119
boots: 3110, 3120, 3140
green: 8240, 8260, 8270
outline: 9100, 9101, blender
