Christmas Friends Deck the Halls

Digital image by Mo Manning ‘Harry Needs a Hand’. Ink: Copics. Cardstock: Wild Wasabi, Real Red, GP110, Daisy D’s ‘Sugarplum Paisley’. Accessories: Rectangle Nestabilities, SU scallop border punch, organdy ribbon, gemstones, glitter chipboard star, Basic Grey rub-on.

We all need a helping hand once in a while, right? And when you are just a few inches shy of reaching the top of the Christmas tree, a friend can come in very handy! Here's close up of these cute critters because they are a little difficult to see in the full card photo:
This digital image is free for members on Mo Manning’s Papercraft Planet or SNR user groups; you can find links to these groups in her blog's side bar. You can view all her whimsical images at Mo’s online store, Mo's Digital Pencil Shop.

Mo’ s challenge for this week is 'Challenge #5: All that Glitters' which is to create a project with three sparkly embellishments. I used ribbon with a glitter thread, gemstones, and a glittery star chipboard:
The layout for this card was inspired by Midnight Madness sketch #27.

Thanks going out to Patti (SCS: MommaPatti) for sending me the Wild Wasabi cardstock through WRAK!
