Pile of presents with berries, pine cones and holly leaves

Hi everybody,

I did another Christmas card. And though I really love the image that I used on this one the main product that I wanted to use was this pretty Christmas berry spray by Wild Orchid Crafts. I've ordered these a while back and have been wanting to try them ever since.
The image is by Lili of the Valley and is named Pile of Presents, I think it's retiring so if you want to get it you'd better hurry. I did add another present that I stamped from the Deck the Halls stamp (also from LOTV and also retiring). The papers are old ones by Basic Grey with white and green cardstock.
A close up of the image, as always colored with Copics and 3D paper pieced for extra dimension. As mentioned, the present before his foot shouldn't be there but I thought the image needed something in that corner so I stamped it and paper pieced it in there. I've added some flower soft under his feet and as snow in the sky.
And the gorgeous Christmas Spray that I used in a close up. I used one single spray on this card and even had some berries left, I absolutely adore these pine cones and these pretty berries. On the Wild Orchid Crafts blog I explained how I attached them.
And the little pieces the image was made of. Can you see the ghost present? Shadow is there but no present yet :).

Hope you like my new Christmas card. Have a great day everybody!!!
