Christmas in March

I realized it was the 25th and last year I made a Christmas card most every 25th of the month and hadn't done so this year. If I don't get crackin' I won't have any Christmas cards when I need them.

I hadn't used this image but once or twice and think she is so pretty so I pulled her out today. Tilda is colored with copics. W1,3,5 for her dress. R49, 46,44 (I think) for the roses and trim on her dress. G9,6,3 for the leaves. YR23,21 for her hair. B60,W1 for the background. I used gold stickles for her halo with some star dust stickles as accents for the halo and flowers. The paper is capella from basic grey. I roughed up the edges of some of the papers. The lace was sitting on my desk and I thought it would look pretty with some ribbon woven through it. Added some swirls from a memory box die and then put some nail head stickers in the corners.
 I so enjoy your comments.

Oh, I love this card. And what a great idea to make Christmas cards on the 25th of the month! At the first of the year I thought I'd make Christmas cards all year ... well, haven't made one yet. I think I'll adopt your 25th idea! Thanks!

Love the rich colors, as well as that ribbon through the lace. I need to get crackin' on my Christmas cards, too. What a great idea to make one on the 25th of every month. Now if we could just clear our calendars and make sure that Mr. Mojo is paying a visit on that day, right?!?
