Christmas carousel

   Christmas in July is the theme for the challenge beginning today at QKR Stampede. I have used a digi image from their sister company Eureka Stamps called Christmas carousel (# 16804). I printed it out twice and coloured the images using Promarkers. I cut out the horse from the second image, shaped it slightly and glue gelled it to the base image.
   The papers used on my card are from a Kaisercraft Christmas Collections paper pad. After attaching the decoupaged image to my card I outlined it using maroon gold edged peel off strips. I then cut three holly embellishments using a Tattered Lace mini die and coloured them using Promarkers. Once I had attached them to the card I filled the centres of the berries with Liquid Pearls.
