Merry Little Christmas

This is my take on this month's sketch at CLP Challenges.  I created a Christmas card using Sneaky Tilda from Magnolia Stamps.  The base of my card is hunter green.  I cut a piece of Christmas plaid card stock a little smaller than the base of the card and backed it in merry card stock.  I cut a tag out of tan card stock. To the top of the tag I added a piece of crackled green patterned paper that I punched the edge using an eyelet lace border punch.  I added a piece of brown sugar baker's twin and a bow to the tag and added it to the card.  I cut a piece of tan card stock and punched the bottom edge using the same eyelet lace border punch.  I added a piece of hunter green ribbon and a piece of brown sugar baker's twine across the middle of it and added it to the card.  I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils and backed it in merry card stock.  I added a off white satin flower to a sage green crocheted flower to the corner of the image.  I added a red and green hat pin to the flower. I finished off the front of the card by adding cream pearls to the top corner.

I finished the inside of the card by cutting a piece of crackled green card stock a little smaller than the card base. I backed it in merry cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment onto white card stock and backed it in merry.  Then I cut a piece of the Christmas plaid card stock a little bigger than the sentiment and backed it in tan card stock.
