Challenge 79 - NO designer papers

It seems lots of you are getting into the Christmas spirit as regards card making.  The entries for Challenge 78 were fabulous and our DT member is going to have a difficult task in choosing a Winner and Top 3.  These will be announced later so please become a follower and never miss a post.

For Challenge 79 we have the fabulous Mi Ran from 

Here is a little bio from the artist

Hello I am Mi Ran artist and owner of Artbymiran, I was born in Seoul, South Korea. I grew up with Korean and Japanese Manga. In my childhood, I loved drawing and making my own little stories. I moved to Canada in my late 20s, where I reside with my husband.

I have worked on a variety of publications, ranging from children's to contemporary adult genres. I have contributed as an artist and colorist. I also worked as a graphic artist and layout designer for non-comic publications. For several years I was able to share my passion through teaching art to elementary school aged children. These experiences have influenced my recent artwork.

I am excited to have been kindly received into the community of digi stampers and crafters.
I love to share my art. I love thinking of new images, and it’s so fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art.

My designer’s creations can be seen on my blog http://artbymiran.blogspot.com/

The direct link to our shop is :  http://www.etsy.com/shop/artbymiran 

The prize is 3 images of the Winners choice

Theme - NO designer papers
