It's rotation time and I am now on the Dare to be Sassy Thursday team.  This is my first DTBST card.  Our challenge this week is "Let's Celebrate".  What better thing to celebrate than Christmas!  It's the MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR!

I just love Christmas.  So many people seem to be kinder and more generous.  And of course we are celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  I just love the huge birthday party He gets each year.

This lovely image is Elizabeth from Sassy Studio Designs.  Isn't she gorgeous!  She is one of my favorites.   I just love her innocent, demure look.  I colored her with Copic and Whisper Strokes markers then added a bit of Stickles on the top of her dress and her eyes.  The sketch is from Our Daily Bread Designs.  

The papers used are Bazzill, Create with TLC, Paper Pizzazz then I lined with Stickles.  Usually I layer it up but I thought the Stickles made a nice substitute.  The sparkly ribbon I chose is from American Crafts.  It's actually my daughter's ribbon but she kindly allowed me to borrow it for this.  The pearls I added come from Queen & Co.  Finally the snowflakes are from Recollections.  

I hope you like this and please go over to see the other Sassy inspirations at Sassy Studio Designs and get busy.  The challenge will end on Wednesday.
