ChRiStMaS In ApRiL

Welcome to the April installment of the Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop.  Today I am posting a card I made for my mom to hand out at Christmas time.
This card uses some of the more "traditional" Christmas colors of red and green with some cream.  I really do love how it turned out.
I colored my image, Merry Christmas Tilda, with Tim Holtz distress inks and added some red and green Stickles to the words MERRY CHRISTMAS.

My paper is from Close To My Heart
The edge punch I used is from Martha Stewart's Punch-Around-the-page punches
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts
The candy cane and wreath are from Roberts Crafts
The ribbon is from JoAnn's Crafts
