A Christmas commission...couldn't show it before...

Hello and I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas Day full of joy and smiles xxx

Just a quick stop by today to share with you a commission make with you that I couldn't share before Christmas.  As I'm sure many of you did, I had a lot of commission makes and won't be blogging them all (phew I here you cry lol) but I thought I'd share a couple.

So here's the first one....

You know that feeling when you stand back and look at your finished work and smile to yourself...this was one of those!  I love it and had a hard time handing it over lol

A quick bit on what and how:
Image - Autumn's Memoires by Art by MiRan; technically for Autumn but I adore this image so I used snowflakes from my stash to cover some of the leaves and I think it worked quite well...and here in England the leaves are still falling so the weather agree's lol
I coloured with my Graph'it Marker pens (Santa might be bringing me Copic's eeek) and matted and layered the image on gold and red.
The backing papers, little envelopes and insert are all from Michele R Designs and the die cut sides are actually from an envelope element that I enlarged before printing and then die cut them with a Heart Felt Creations Doily Die!
The Sentiment is from Christmas Sentiments Scrabble Tiles by That Craft Place and I cut them out to add to the tags in the envelopes.
With the addition of flowers, pearls, wooden Christmas tree and then white gesso snow (all from That Craft Place that was it!

Here's the close ups:

Thank you so much for stopping by at this busy busy time of year and I really hope you continue to enjoy the holiday festivities xx
