BUGABOO FREEBIE FRIDAY - POPPI XMAS PRESENT - WITH RECIPE

Howdy folks, and welcome back to my blog!  Today is the last day of Catch the Bug's Holiday Critter Chaos already.  That was a quick week!  I hope you all had fun seeing what the DT created for the event, and that you were able to join in!   This week's Friday Freebie is Poppi xmas present, and we are to follow a recipe as well:
Keep it SIMPLE with 2 layers and ribbon or twine
Here is my card:


I colored my image using alcohol markers, and was inspired to go green with my design to keep it simple.  I blended Twisted Citron and Lucky Clover Oxide inks onto the edges of my embossed panel using the traditional blending tools.  The image was cut using Spellbinders classic ovals, and I cut a mat out of green card stock using the scalloped ovals set.  The same green card stock was used to stamp the sentiment, which comes from CAS-UAL Fridays stamp set called Naughty'isms.  I thought it paired PERFECTLY with this image, as Poppi looks a bit naughty!  LOL  I painstakingly tied the 3 jingle bells to the twine bow (I think this took me the longest to do out of all of it!!), and called this a done deal!
