2 Sisters - Christmas in July - Wednesday Inspiration

I used this Digi Doodle Shop image on a card last year.  I ran a card sale at work and a friend saw it and wanted to purchase it.  When she went back to get it someone had already bought it.  She asked me if I could make her a framed piece for this Christmas using the image.  I must admit this is my favorite Christmas image to color, although, it does take several hours.  I feel it's well worth it.

I thought I had saved my color list, but apparently I didn't.  The corner punch is by Memory Box.  I just love it.  Although, the picture doesn't show it, I added lots and lots of Stickles to this image.  The corner dies have added pearls.

I am entering this project in the following challenges:
