Whiff of Joy Christmas

Hi Everyone!!!  Hope everyone is having a lovely start to the holiday weekend!  I wanted to share a different holiday card with you today before our festivities begin.
I am waiting on my new batch of WOJ Christmas Stamps, so I decided to use a non-Christmas image for a Christmas card.  Many of the WOJ images are so versatile, and can be used for lots of themes.
Here I used Shopping Willow. I paper pieced all her fabulous packages with holiday papers.  I then colored the remainder of her with copics.  I distressed the edges, added some stitching and a great big bow.  The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps.  I also used my MS punches to punch snowflakes and holly leaves to add some flowers to.  I also embossed the circle with my holiday embossing folder from SU.  Finally, I added some white flocking to Willow's feet to create the look of snow.  The red I used is the new cherry cobbler from SU, boy is it yummy!  Have a happy weekend!
