Paws-ing for a Christmas Card

I got another free Christmas image from DigiStamps4Joy because I entered last month's Christmas challenge. I wanted to make sure and make a card this month so I can keep adding to my Christmas stash, and get next month's free DS4J image.  Here's what I made this month:

I colored the image with Copic markers, and computer generated the sentiment. Here's a closeup of the sentiment:

I have a new bowmaker, and used it to make the triple bow at the top of the card!  Fun, fun!
