Christmas with Ribbon Hair Tilda


Well, it's now officially less than two months until Christmas, so I'm in trouble!  We always get extremely busy in November and December, even without Christmas, so it makes it a bit challenging.  Therefore, the push continues to get my Christmas cards done!  :)


The stamped sentiment is from C.c. Design's Merry & Bright Sentiments set. 

It's always good to use up scraps, so I dug through my bin and found this old Imaginisce paper from 2009.  The lace is also from my stash.  It almost killed me to use it, I only have a bit left!  A bit of seam binding, some pearls, a Wild Orchid cherry blossom, and away I went.


I've also used some Dazzling Diamonds to add some glitter to the trim on her dress and stripes on her stockings.

Hopefully it's not too plain :)

Challenges:
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Charisma Cardz - Anything Goes
ABC Christmas Challenge - V is for Vintage Christmas
Just Magnolia - Merry Christmas
Party Time Tuesdays - Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs,
     Christine

No, it's not plan at all, I prefer cards that are clean cut than all cluttered. It's more chic:)
