LOTV Thursday Challenge: Old Fashioned Christmas

There's another Thursday sketch challenge over at the LOTV blog. I love this sketch, anything with scallops, and I'm a happy camper!

This is another new Lili of the Valley stamp called Christmas Candle. I wanted to use very antique, victorian type papers for this image, because her coat and hood remind me of this style. I chose my very favorite Christmas papers of all time, Cosmo Cricket's Wonderland.
Of course I had to color her velvet coat and hoot red, and add fluffy Polar White Flower Soft to her hat.

A big striped bow, some pearls and Stickles and it's as pretty as a picture! 

You can play along in our challenge too, for some fun prizes, click the sketch above and it'll take you to the LOTV challenge blog where you can check out the other DT's projects for inspiration and the official rules.
