Merry & Bright

This card is for SCS sketch challenge SC204. I wanted to use my newly trimmed Dress Up Lily set, and decided to use a few images from Limitless Limbs as well!

I stamped the two snowflakes from Limitless Limbs, and then used my Swiss Dots embossing folder to add texture. I coloured Lily with my SU markers, except for her skin, for which I used a Watercolor Wonder Crayon and my blender pen.

I stamped her gift once on the main image, and then again on a scrap of white. I also stamped the hat on the scrap of white. I cut both out, but cut the ribbon off of the gift (I'm crazy enough to try to cut it out!). They're popped up on the image - you can see how I lined it up so the ribbon from the gift underneath shows up.

Lots of glitter and Stickles (including on her flower belt), of course, as well as some tiny gemstones for her earrings!

To get the dots of Stickles around the oval fairly even, I first dotted at 12, 3, 6, and 9 o'clock. Then I just dotted the middle between each of those points, and then the middle of those as well. I find this technique works quite well to evenly space borders.
