Marilyn is retiring!

I am so glad I bought the "sassy Marilyn" before she was retired at http://sassystudiodesigns.blogspot.com/
If you are not familiar with their images, please check them out.  They are great!  They also have a "freebie Friday" every week and they give the best digis.  Always something current and appropriate for the season.  They also have the most fun blog hops and sponsor quite a few challenges.
 Here is what I did with the "Marilyn"   I made it a christmas card by adding the die cut, glitter presents to the front.  I cut the frame with a Martha Stewart punch and used the swiss dots folder in the cuttlebug.  I colored her with a mix of copic, pro and noir markers.

  I also used my embossing pen and Martha stewart embossing power for the first time.  I loved the way the signature came out and it will be my new favorite embellishment.  I was impressed with the pen.  For some reason, when I used an ink stamp pad, I don't get good results.. not sure why, but I know I need to practice.  I used Rubbernecker stamps for the sentiment and added the "Christmas"  I also used their fabulous stamp that measures around 4x6 and simply masked off the sentiment that I put down first. 
  Here is the inside:  

  I am entering the following challenges:
