Right on to Christmas!

Good morning! I started and finished this card yesterday! I had to because it is to showcase our Copic Creations Challenge for the next two weeks, which is to color red hair with your copics! We'd love for you to join in! Wow! I just checked and the prize is for a $35.00 gift certificate to 7 Kids college fund!! What a prize! You have until midnight on Nov. 14 to enter your piece of art! This is "Dinner Tilda" from the Yummy for your Tummy collection at Magnolia-licious. she is number 388. I've dressed her in "green velvet" and given her shoes to match her hair! (Just couldn't resist!). I'm not sure I like the rest of the card but want you to know I used paper from Karen Foster, Basic Grey and Graphic 45-love the rich cream with green and dark red! I just got some charms from ebay and the ribbon from No Time to Stamp's Sharon Johnson.
Here are the copic colors I used:
Hair (and shoes!) E13, E15, E17 and E18
skin the usual- E93, E000, And E01
Blouse E91 and blender
Outfit YG93, YG97 and YG99 with a little YG0000 for blending.
There are gold spica dots on her outfit for a little extra dressiness!

Thanks for visiting! Please check out the fabulous projects from the rest of the Copic challenge Team! (Link above and on Sidebar)
I appreciate your visit

Cheryl! what a little cutie pie she is... love the red hair...
I don't own any copics, but there should be a color that would work in the prisma pencils.
This is a fab way to start off the Christms cards!
