My first DT Post with a Christmas card

Hello everyone I hope you are all well today and having a great day whatever you are up too. I am the newest DT member and will be posting a new creation each Saturday for you. I am hoping to alternate between cards, gift boxes etc in the run up to Christmas so where possible I will also post instructions for the non card items so you can have a go. 
Just to let you know a little about me I am 24 and am an avid crafter and also now a runner. I ran 9 miles followed by 30 minutes abs work this morning as I am training for my second half marathon I love it. I live at home with my husband and two cats and work as a PA for a security firm.

Now for the craft stuff :)
For my first card I have used the sweetest little image called Kitty Surprise which you can find here

I have coloured the image using my copic markers - I always use copics for my colouring i love them. I have typed out the colours I used below (just in case you wanted to know). 
The paper I have used is from the Dovecraft let it snow premium paper pack - I love the papers in this pack they are such good quality i hate using it though because it means it will run out soon :( I have cut the paper in to 4 squares of 5.5 cm and mounted them on silver miri card. These have been stuck on to the card back using double sided tape (I get mine off Ebay) The ribbon is also a purchase from ebay i have the same type in loads of different colours.

Here is a view of the card from the side. As you can see i popped theimage up using foam squares and have also used the same paper to decorate the inside of the card. 

Copics used

G17, G07, G05
BG23, BG15, BG13, BG11, BG10
C7, C5, C3, C2, C1
White highlighter pen 

I hope you like my card see you next saturday xx
