Here is my creation for today;s sneak peek:

I used Jungle Bells Three - Giraffe by Crissy Armstrong. I colored using Copics and the sentiment is from the Christmas Mini Tags set by Raindrop Echo Designs. I added some polar white flower soft as snow to the image and dipped the flowers into crystal clear coarse glass glitter for a frosted effect. And if you want to see what the gorgeous holly die cut is all about make sure to visit the Whimsy blog again tomorrow ;-)
