Christmas Recipe

I'm back with my final Bugaboo Christmas in July challenge card...woo hoo, I was able to get them all done!  It was indeed a challenge, but a fun one!

This last challenge was a recipe:

1. Tied Up With a Bow: use a ribbon bow
2. Keepin' Warm: include at lease 3 layers
3. Let It Sparkle: use glitter or bling
4. A Little Eggnog: use the color cream

1, 2, 3, 4: check, check, check, check!

Scarlett is colored with pencils and I've accented the fur on her dress with glitter.  The papers are distressed and I've added some coordinating banners, adorned with a chocolate ribbon.  The final touch was a smattering of Swarovski AB crystals...I like the way they pick up the pink and blue in the DP.

Image: Bugaboo Stamps
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: PTI Vintage Cream, Dark Chocolate, and Pure Poppy, My Mind's Eye DP
Embellies: Art Glitter in "Angel Dust", Swarovski Flatback Crystals in "AB", SU! Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon
