Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge--Banners or Tags

Are you ready for another wonderful Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge by our wonderful hostesss Dorcas?  The theme this week is, banners or tags.  I chose banners and it was so much fun to create this fun card with this darling image, called Santa's Hat :

Isn't he, called Santa's Hat,  just the sweetest little guy waiting for Santa?  I colored him with copic markers and airbrushed the edge softly with blue for that nighttime feel.  I love to color the fur on caps with my white gel pen, my favorite part of Christmas coloring I think LOL. 

I love the red and white bakers twine which almost looks like candy cane colors wrapped around the panel of green and red polka dots and I left the top of the panel a little taller to have a white background for my banner which was cut out with my cricut.

I love that I could let the machine cut out the NOEL in the banner so perfectly in the plaid banners.  I added a piece of the bakers twine to string the banner across the top of the card to tie it all together.  I cut a red and white paper clip in half for the two candy canes :)

Be sure to stop by the Mo's DT. Challenge Blog and see what the rest of the team has to show you, I know it will be some beautiful stuff. 

We love to have you all play along in the challenges with us and love to see the beautiful cards you create.  Be sure to drop by the store and see the wonderful Christmas images Mo has in case you are still creating your Christmas cards LOL.  I know I am :).

Thanks for stopping by my little piece of cyberspace and have a wonderful creative day.

OK, I'm amazed at the white fur part...did you say you used a gel pen?? Like a glittery one? Or did it just dry sparkly? Very effective! Beautiful coloring, Cathy!

Great card, Cathy! Beautiful coloring! I haven't done any pennants or banners, but they look great on the cards. It's a good challenge and your take on it is very inspiring, as always!
