Bah! Humbug! Challenge #5 --- Buttons and Bows

Hey, look at me! I have my Bah! Humbug! post done and it is only Tuesday!! No sliding in under the wire this week! I was already into buttons and bows from yesterday's post so it just made sense to move on into this one.  After exploring all my (ignored and neglected) buttons I just might have to do more cards to use them up!

My card this week is a little off the beaten path for traditional Christmas cards, except for the image.  The image is Festive Winter Willow from Whiff of Joy.  I actually colored this image for the 2009 Christmas season but didn't get it mounted. Do you ever get so many images colored that you might never get caught up?  But you keep coloring the new and fabulous images that you just had to have?  But, I digress....

This is vintage WOJ and one of my favorites.  Along with the Copic coloring I added white Fun Flock to the hat and muff.  Clear Stickles give a little shimmer to her gown. The dp is Black and Ivory by K & Co. The buttons, ribbon and black bow are coordinating embellies by Making Memories Black Tie.  I love it when all the pieces work together.

Actually, I do have just the right person in mind to give this to next Christmas. So, maybe it's not so off the wall! 

I hope you enjoyed your visit here as much as I appreciate your time to stop by.  Now is the perfect time for you to click here to visit the ladies at Bah! Humbug! to see their wonderful creations.  Join in with us, too! There are prizes to be won!!

Just lovely Barb, Gorgeous image (this one always reminds me of the Snow Queen)and beautifully coloured, as always.
I thought those papers were stunning but familiar, then I realised I have this 12x12 pad and have never used it!!!
