Bah! Humbug! Challenge 32 --- "Kiss"mas!

The ladies at Bah! Humbug! have a knack for creative challenges.  This week it is all about "Kiss"mas and, honestly, what is Christmas without KISSES?  There's mommy kissing Santa Claus, kissing under the mistletoe, and, yes, kissing dear old Aunt Gertrude!

My card is all about "Cooooool" kisses as Siku and Shiya by Mo Manning share an Eskimo kiss. 

I kept it all pretty simple, focusing mostly on the image. The beautiful paisley dp is by The Paper Studio, the rhinestone circles by Recollections at Michael's, and the bow made from ribbon in my stash. (This is the last of this roll of ribbon and I don't know what I will do without it!)

These cuties are colored with Copics.  The blues are B91, B93, B95 and B 99. The browns are E49, E71 and E77.  The fur on the blue parka is colored with Cool ("C") neutrals; the brown with Warm ("W") neutrals. And the image is cut with the Nesties circle die.

Inside is more of the paisley dp with blue card stock for a personal note. The rhinestone arc is the leftover from one on the front of the card.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to visit Bah! Humbug! to see more "Kiss"mas ideas.  Believe me, they are really coooooool --- and HOT!
