Barbara: Holly with Bauble

I am so proud to be on the design team for The Crafty Pad This is my first post for this blog.
This week's challenge is to use a circle and two ribbons.
 Isn't this image adorable? It is called Holly with Bauble. I knew I wanted to make a tent window card even though I have only made one before. The directions that I used can be found  HERE. I love Paper piecing and used this technique on the bauble as well as Holly's scarf and hat. I took several pictures so that you can see a side view and a close-up of Holly. It really is a simple card to make and looks so elegant!

Dp and Cardstock: Michael's
Coloring: Copic Markers
Bling: Gelly Roll pens, Viva pen
Ribbon: ACMoore
