Basic Grey Challenge 9 - Christmas

Over at the Basic Grey Challenges Blog this week, the challenge is to create something in the theme of Christmas, using at least one Basic Grey product in the creation.

This is my entry:

The base card is from an ivory coloured Bazzill Bling cardstock. All other papers used are from the Basic Grey ~ Figgy Pudding range and I used Kringle, Jolly, Red Ryder and Trinket.

I stamped Magnolia ~ Christmas Tilda on various pieces of the Basic Grey papers to achieve the look I wanted. I then carefully cut them out and layered them up. The hat, scarf, dress and shoes are all BG papers. I coloured the remaining parts being hands, legs, face and hair with ... guess what? Yup, my Copic markers.

I added a little red jngly bell to the top of her hat, which gives a nice jingly sound when you rattle it. Finally, I finished it off with a *chilly* metal brad from Around the Block.

Thank you for looking!
