Christmas in February

I almost didn't make it but I did finish my Christmas card for February 25th. I hadn't used a Tilda stamp in a long time so I decided I should remedy that. I love Tilda.

What a comedy of errors this card was. I hadn't planned on using the burgundy ribbon but I put the tape too high for the lace so I either had to put the lace too high or add something. I elected to add the ribbon. I was going to put a little wooden tree where the poinsettia is. I was trying to make the tree green and it dropped and I couldn't find it so I put the hero arts poinsettia with a gold dew drop in the center instead. (then I found the tree, oh well.) Tilda is colored with prisma color and spectrum noir pencils. The tree is a die cut from memory box. The top has a dew drop and all the other flowers have gold stickles on them. The lace is from Target's One Spot. 
Merry February 25th!

Love sweet Tilda and the Christmas tree, Christmas - isn't that like 10 months away??? I always say I'm going to start early - but never do. Love how your "oops" card turned out so beautiful.
