Festive Wishes

Hello all!
I went with a festive card today and cut into my new BG Eskimo Kisses paper pad. I purchased this gorgeous branch stamp from The Stamp Barn knowing that it would be perfect for Tilda to sit on - and I was right!! Doesn't she look so cute sitting there?
I've coloured with my copics and went with this pretty deep pink to complement the green. I added loads of liquid applique and then glamour dust before heating it. I cut around the far end of the branch before using my oval nesties (my first time using that technique and I love it - so effective).
Ribbon, dew drops and a tree charm finish off the details on this card. The sentiment is from The Stamp Barn too.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving your beautiful comments - they really brighten up my day! Hope you're all enjoying your weekend!

Hugs,
