Christmas in...August?

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas....well, not really.  But it is in Blogland!!  If you follow me, you know that last week I made a Christmas tag for Simply Betty Challenges, but forgot to do the color part of the challenge (cranberry red, hot cocoa brown, snow white and teal).  Whoops!  Well, now I'm back, and I'm using one of my favorite images from Betty's new Christmas release.

Meet Judy Present!  Isn't she adorable?  She's part of the Sweet Gothic Kids Christmas line, which can be found here.  I colored her with Copics....of course. LOL The flowers I made using a tutorial I found at Tammy's blog here...she did the tutorial for Catch the Bug Wednesday this week.  Aren't they fun?  I was really excited to try it out!  The rest of the papers, gems and ribbon were part of my scrap stash. (The background paper and small flower look a bit green...but they're chocolate brown IRL.)

Well, this tag is a bit different from my last Simply Betty tag.  =D  (I did promise I would make a happy one next. LOL)   I'm pretty happy with how it turned out!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  We'll see you soon!

Awesome tag and design, Starla. I love the colors you used. The red and green really pop from the CC background.
