X-mas Caroling Kids

Hi everyone!

It's very humid in India and I love to spend my time  watching new techniques and projects and enjoyed them:). Most of the challenges are on Christmas in July theme, so I decided to make a card on this theme.
Here is my card..........
The gorgeous image is from Digi Darla called caroling Kids and I coloured my image using distress markers first time .
Add caption
Here is the closure look......

I chose a red CS and the PP is from DCWV in big polka dots.

A tag is attached with a beautiful Christmas message.
I embellished my card with some pretty jute flowers and added a red coloured mesh sheet , some rhinestones and red coloured ribbon. The string is from Tim Holtz jute string sets.

Look at the inside view:
The sentiments are free, I do not remember from where. I used new Fuji Transparent water colour folios first time which is very popular now a days. I added some music notes and stamped them on a red coloured mirror CS and embossed the music note stamps.

I think you all will like my creation:)
Here are the other supplies I used:
Golden textured sheet
white ivory CS
Green glittered sheet
Distress markers-salty ocean,squeezed lemonade,ripe persimmon, mowed lawn,festive berries, gathered twigs
Fuji watercolor folios-flesh tint, scarlet, light blue
Sizzix die
Sakura glitter pens-red, golden
Barn door distress ink
Wow embossing glitter powder-Metallic gold rich pale and embossing glitter- Sparkling snow, Metallic gold 
Jef giant punch-CD99xxl
