Holly decor

Yes, it is getting to "that time of year" once again -- may as well get a start on making those extra-special holiday cards, as well as finding a few challenges to enter, as an extra incentive.  Here is Tilda in her holiday best.   The snowflakes ARE actually buttons that I've cut the shanks off, and the poinsettia centers are metal brads.   I really enjoyed putting this card together, once I played around a bit with embellishments for the proper placement.
