Last Corrosive Challenges Challenge of 2013

Welcome to everyone stopping by.  This is the very last challenge of 2013 for Corrosive Challenges.  I just want to say that I have had a great time crafting with the amazing Corrosive Design Team this year.  Crafting is my favorite way to release stress.  Well that and hanging out with my beautiful birds.

For this challenge we are sponsored by Lacy Sunshine Stamps.  Here is a little bit about the company:
Lacy Sunshine Stamps offers beautiful original and imaginative digital stamps for all your paper crafting needs. 

All images from Lacy Sunshine are hand drawn and designed by myself, Heather Valentin, a professional artist, muralist and illustrator and my dad, professional artist, G.P. 

From the art desk of Lacy Sunshine's creator....

"I am one who loves creating timeless pieces from my heart and soul, creating an extraordinary world filled with magic and whimsical friends.... one drawing at a time. Come journey with me now into my Lacy Sunshine World".
This is the first time I have used a Lacy Sunshine image but it certainly will not be the last.  The images are so stinking cute.  I was given Eleanor-Santa's Helper to work with.  She is so adorable.  I had a great time working with her.

I colored Eleanor with Copics, cut her out and popped her up with SU dimensionals.  I added Glossy Accents to her glasses and holly.  I used glitter glue on all the fur trim.  I made the tree using a Tim Holtz Alterations die call Pine Tree.  I stamped it with an SU background stamp.  If you look closely, you can see that I wasn't paying attention and stamped it upside down.  The sentiment stamp is also from SU.  I added Liquid Applique on the tree to bring a little snow into the card.  The white paper was embossed with a Sizzix snowflake embossing folder.  The fancy circle was made with a die from QuicKutz.  The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
