Lili of the Valley

Lili of the Valley's challenge this week is a Christmas card in non traditional colours - as I never do Christmas cards in traditional colours this was pretty easy - so to make it a little more difficult for myself I decided to try and keep it Clean and Simple not easy for me!! 



This is about as CAS as I get and I just couldn't resist adding flowers and leaves - I did try hard not to!! This beautiful image is coloured in Copics, the fur on her hat is a mixture of fun flock and flower soft and I've used Stardust stickles on the ground. The white is embossed with the Snowdots folder and the edges cut with a Carla Craft punch. The frame for the image is cut with Spellbinder octagons, the holly leaves with a Crealies die and the ribbon is from my stash. I have got a small Happy Christmas stamp that I will stamp down the side of the image when I find it - I must stop tidying up LOL!!

Tidying up is lethal. I do like this white & turquoise & this CAS style is much more manageable than the more traditional take on the subject.
Super.
