Baby Bud Christmas Card

Oh Hi, here I am back again.
I saw this cute Baby Bud freebie digi and wanted to give it a try. So, not use shimmer mist spray with digis. The ink bleeds. OPPS.
News: I finished all my Christmas cards today!!! This was the last one. I am all done! I have to get them sent out of course, but I have plenty of time for that. I made 45 cards. Okay, so lets take a look at this Baby Bud card.
The Sentiments are from Mark's Finest Papers. CS: Red from AC Cardstock, Close to Cocoa from Stampin' Up. DP is from Basic Grey Boxer collection. I did lots of dry embossing and used textured CS. I painted the image with watercolor crayons from SU. This is a fun and funky Holiday card. Here are some detail pics so you can see all the challenge elements.

I put another sentiment on the inside which is from My Sentiments Exactly.
