Christmas in Feburary Blog Hop!

So glad you came by today! It's alreaday the 25th again and time for Julie's Christmas card challenge! If you happened here first you can start the hop at Julie's blog so you don't miss anything!
My card has a burgunday card base, then a layer of mellow moss. After that is some dotted paper from the scrap bin and the green is another scrap paper (Graphic 45). I just didn't know what to use so I decided that was a good reason to use up a couple of scraps! I just got this garden trellis (Martha Stewart) punch and though I know it will be great on spring and summer cards I just couldn't wait to use it! (This is sort of like a bride-something old, something new!)

Tilda is colored with my copics.
Colors used are Eooo, Eo1 and R20 for skin
E33, E99, E15 and E29 for hair
YG93, YG95 and YG97 for the tree and dress
R29, R46 and R59 for her blouse
E42 for her apron.
E31, E25 and E15 for her boots.
YR21 and Y35 for her halo and sparkle
W00, W1 and W2 for surround

so sorry for the early post!!
Your next stop is over to Playing with color to see what Deb has for you!
Enjoy the hop and the day!
