Uptown girl EVE under the MISLETOE

I already shared this card yesterday on my fb page Handmade by Tamara, but I simply didn't have the time to write a post too. oh well .... life ....

Making this card was a fun process. I have a mini misti for stamping and this girl EVE is simply too tall to fit inside (together with the paper), so I was stamping again. I haven't done it by hand since I bought misti. lol

Image was coloured using Distress markers and ink pads. Card measures 8"x4.5" and is the biggest card I ever made. heh ...
