White Christmas

 Please forgive the dark photo, I waited way too long to try to get a picture yesterday and the light was fading fast.  Although this isn't a traditional Christmas card, with a Christmas greeting, I am going to send it to my best friend with her Christmas gift, so it really is a Christmas card.
This second picture shows the glitter accents I created for the Papertrey Ink Make it Monday challenge to add glitter detail to your image.  I added glitter to the cuffs, neckline, and bottom ribbing of the shirt and glitter dots on her tights/leggings (although I used a glitter pen instead of a glue pen and glitter; same cool effect).
