1st Xmas card of the year

I loathe Christmas as soon as Boxing Day is over but by Feb I've generally got over it lol.

My first xmas card of the year is using a lovely layout from Friday Sketchers

Tilda & Edwin are water coloured using cherry cobbler, old olive, nearly navy, basic grey and various brown & yellow shades of StampinUp markers.

To make life extremely easy I teamed the image with Jolly Holiday papers & the matching old olive & cherry cobbler card stock SU ribbon & sentiment and some flowers from WildOrchid. The smaller roses were cream but I rolled them in the cherry cobbler inkpad then spritzed with water. Small amount of stardust stickles on Tildas coat and I've just realised I missed a bit of edwins top.. oops good job I water coloured and it's easy enough to go back and add some more colour.
