Double DT card with one of my favourite stamps

Time for a candy stripes challenge at Crafty Little Fairies and spots or stripes at Crafty Ribbons. So I have one card for both today using one of my most favourite stamps. I have coloured her a few times and each time I improve. I hate to think what my first effort a few years ago was like. This is the first time I have used her this Christmas and therefore the first time I have coloured her with Copics and I have to say I am pleased with my efforts.
Image - Elisabeth Bell for Whiff of Joy
Medium - Copics
Papers - Papermania Capsule Jewels
Dies - MB traditional stars
Punch - MS border
Ribbon - cherry saddle stitch from Crafty Ribbons
Other - pearls from The Hobby House, White souffle pen

Yes this is a beautiful stamp and you have coloured her perfectly. The folds in her gown are gorgeous. What Copic colour numbers did you use? I'm trying to make a start at collecting colour combos.

I forgot I have this stamp! Not used this year. Your colouring is brilliant. I did find it hard on her dress, to get the blend right with DI. So she stayed in my Christmas file this year. Great card. Hugs, Carol S.xx
