Christmas Card Using Conie Fong "Christmas Leilani" with CTMH Products

Hello Friends!   I hope everyone is still enjoying their summer or whatever season you are in at this time.  I will be happy when fall arrives; not that I am wishing Summer away.  I just don't do well in the hot weather and I love being outside.

I created a card with this gorgeous new Conie Fong "Christmas Leilani" and had so much fun coloring her.  I love coloring long hair and I know I should try to get better at coloring something besides blondes; but I love blonde hair.  I find it easier for me to color than the other colors and it looks better to me than my other colors I have tried.  LOL!  I had one black hair turn out good; but not since then.  

I kept this card Clean and simple.  I didn't want to cover the pretty paper and distract from the image.  I thought it was perfect the way it was.  Of course, it looks much better in person.  I had a lot of trouble with the lavender colors showing blue in some of the photo; but not much I can do about that.  She really does have lavender lipstick, no blue.  LOL!

Using CTMH "Oh Deer" Christmas paper (retired)

The blue is really CTMH Wisteria; which is Lavender 
but the silly cameras won't capture that color.
