Happy Holly-Days {MFTWSC100}!

Hi everyone!! Happy Wednesday! 

Here is my card for this week's MFT Sketch Challenge, MFTWSC100!  I cannot even believe we are up to #100!  That went so fast no?

This week, I went with another Christmas card...I am really trying to make enough to send to my stampy friends...and no, I don't send hand made cards to most of my family and friends...they get a picture card of my girlies (which is WAY easier lol).

For my card today, I've used the oh so cute Pure Innocence Holly Girl.  I stamped her onto X Press It Blending Card and colored her with Copic Markers.  Her dress was paper pieced with the same papers I've used on my card, Very Merry Christmas from Echo Park Papers.  I cut out the panel, and layered it, using the Rectangle STAX 1 Die-Namics and Rectangle STAX 2 Die-Namics.

On the horizontal panel I added a border with the Small Scallop Border Die-Namics, and I added a yummy Hot Fudge Grosgrain Ribbon tied with The Bow Easy.  I used Hot Fudge for my card this color!

Here is a closeup of her.  LOVE her sweet expression.

I've used both the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-Namics and Fishtail Flags Layers STAX Die-Namics to cut my trio of flags, which I attached to my card with a Natural Button tied with Hemp Cord.

On the inside I added more patterned paper, and I stamped her again, this time in Wild Cherry MFT Ink.  I added the sentiment, "Happy Holly-Days" (cute right?).  I sponged all of the edges of the patterned paper panels with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink.

Here are the Copic Markers I've used on my card:

Here are the Die-Namics I've used on my card:

And here is the MFT Ink I've used on my card (love):
