Ebony Christmas Eve

Over at Elphine House Australia, we're playing us some Tic-Tac-Toe!  Our new momma, Miss Lynda, challenged us to use one line on this board for our challenge.

We would love to have you stop by and play!  You can find all the details over at our Elphine House Australia Challenge Blog.  I chose the line die cuts, flowers, and punches.  Here's my sweet Ebony Christmas Eve.  She so reminds me of my girls when they were small, carrying around their favorite stuffy with them in their new pajamas.  I simply love her!

This cutie pie was colored with copics and I added some Stickles to her ribbon, holly leaves and gown.  The poinsettias are from PRima and I doused them with Goosebumps to make them look like they've been crystalized.  The swirls are from my Spellbinders and the gems are from my stash.  I love this Christmas paper from K&Company, it's so gorgeous!  I made a band along the side with my Martha Stewart punch.

Doesn't she have just the sweetest little face?

I swear I could just eat her up!

Here are a couple of side views of her.

She's just so pretty even from the side!

And Judy, here's an inside for you.  I touched the sides with distressed ink and added a couple of swirls to the inside.

Make sure to stop over at our Elphine House Australia Challenge Blog and see all the fabulous creations that my stamping sisters came up with to inspire you.  Happy Early Holidays to all of you!

Oh yes Susan, she is so adorable but even cuter the way you've colored her in the traditional colors. Love the DP, the swirls and all the glitz. She also reminds me of my daughter when she was little and her granddaughter. Beautiful card my friend! "Hugs"
