YNS Challenge - 3 & Very 1st COPIC Creation lol

Good Morning for the second time today,
This time round I'm sharing my card for this weeks YNS Challenge which is hosted by the wonderful Simonne!! The challenge set is to design a Christmas Card but without using the Traditional colours - Red or Green! All the DT starlets have had chance to play with some Limited Edition Christmas Digis which are adorable. I decided to use Skating Ellie with the Merry Christmas Sentiment. If you want to join in the fun you have until midnight (EST) Tuesday the 17th and you again there will be 2 winners.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA         This card turned out really sweet but as i mentioned yesterday it is my very 1st attempt at colouring with Copics or even markers to be fair so as you can see I have a long way to go but practice makes perfect ;0) I welcome any constructive criticism lol so please feel free to tell me what you think and any hints and tips that may help me.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA         I must admit though they were just amazing to use and i can see why they are so addictive :/ I also used my new ribbon trio tag nesties and I can see i will use these a lot.
Thank you for looking ;0)
