Merry and bright

I've got another new release from My Favorite Things today. Cosmo Girl is at it again! This time she's decorating a Christmas tree :)

I stamped the entire main image from A Balanced Holiday on a Perfect Paper Panel and then stamped the girl again on a PPP. Her dress is paper pieced, as is the tree and the rug, and I drew the flooring in. The ladder was also cut out and "pieced". Coloring was done with Copic markers. Patterned paper is from a K & Company mat pad from last year and card stock is Old Olive and Bravo Burgundy. The sentiment is accented with some teeny tiny brads. The ribbon is New Leaf from PTI and the button and twine is also PTI. This was a super fun card to make and I'm looking forward to using this set again!

My Favorite Things is shaking it up a bit. There's a new contest (with a serious prize!) starting up now. Check it out at the Member Company Forum at SCS.
