One more Christmas card done!  I kept this one flat and free of lots of embellishments so that it is easier to mail.  Doing my part, one card at a time, to keep the post office in business.

Cupcake Thief

Today's card is for a special young lady turning 14!  I kept the card free of lots of embellishments since it will need to be mailed.  After coloring with copics, I added glitter to the cupcake frosting, extreme glitter paint to her wings and white embossing emanel with blue sparkles around the edges. I am not sure that it shows up in the pic, but the blue paper is a shiny cardstock.
