Sing a song of Christmas

It's great how you can manage to eek out the scraps when you really love the papers/colours......but there's very little left to eek out now......so a just little bit more red and aqua for Christmas.
A carol singing Tilda [for those who've wondered.....the 'fur' is Fun Flock]........layered up......and embellished with some die cut snowflakes and jewels.
She fits in with a few of this week's challenges......Simon Says wants 'anything' ........Just Magnolia want 'die cuts'......Stamping for Pleasure want 'xmas'.....Fab'nFunky want 'f' [as in fur].....and PolkaDoodles want 'favourite holiday and teal' [I'm thinking there's a bit of teal in there in real life.....though the camera makes it look more blue.....and christmas is definately my favourite holiday......I've even started some xmas knitting now].

I'll be sorry when all the aqua and red scraps are used. The colors go together so nicely and make it a truly colorful Christmas card.

What a fab job you are doing with your eke-ing out the red and aqua papers - another FABULOUS card from you Jacky

Greetings from sunny Florida

Your red & blue combo is fabulous, and the flocking on the fur was inspired. Love this card. TFS

I love your use of aqua. For some reason red and aqua are becoming staple color combos for my Christmas cards this year =)
