Tilda & Lantern

This is one of my all time favorite Tilda images. I love her old fashioned lantern and her sweet coat and hat. The ribbon I used on this card was the whole inspiration for the color scheme. I think I bought it a long time ago on Etsy, just never used it. Striped mulitcolor ribbon is hard to use on cards in my usual way. Normally I pick an image first, then choose the DP I want to use and use colors from the DP to color the image with. 99% of the time, I won't be able to find a matching ribbon from the huge stash of striped multicolor ribbons I have after I have already chosen the papers. BUT, if I choose a ribbon first, like this one, then the color scheme is easy to put together after that.
I used a bit of shimmery brown cardstock just to add to the Christmas-y feel, love that stuff. I don't know where I got it, or where I can get more, LOL. I really need to keep track of this stuff! I have to dig through my scraps and hope I can find a piece that still has the brand label on it.
Thanks for looking, enjoy your weekend!
