Rocking horse

Good morning everyone, it's been a while since I used any of my Elisabeth Bell stamps, so I decided to use this little cutie from Belles 'n Whistles to make a Christmas card. I colored her with my colored pencils, blended with OMS, except for her skin which I colored with Copics. 

The paper is a retired Christmas collection from Stampin' Up, shimmery snowflakes and flocked damask. I punched little holly leaves with a mini EK Success punch, embossed them with clear embossing powder to make them glossy and added some red pearls for the berries. 

The sentiment is from a clear Impression Obsession set called 'The Miracle of Christmas'. I love that quote from Dickens!
Hope you like her, thanks for visiting!
