I'm showing the BEAUTIFUL image of NETTIE today. She's perfect for so many different things, not just the holidays. I mirrored Sheri's awesome sketch cause of the way she's facing.
 
 
She's stamped onto Cryogen White and colored with Copics. I also used one of the gorgeous HOLIDAY TRINKETS stamped onto kraft cardstock. The DP's are from Lili of the Vaelly matted with Bazzill cardstock. The flourish is from Cheery Lynn and the border punch is Martha Stewart.
