Little Holly ....

Today I have 'Little Holly' from the wonderful Lili of the Valley latest release.  This is the second card I have made using this little cutie but this time I have gone for a night time background.  I have coloured her using a selection of Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Prismas to create this affect.  As you can see I have taken my time and done it 'Pointillism' style.  
I have used navy linen cardstock, Papermania backing paper, Rymans white cardstock.
The sentiment is from the Adorables range of stamps, some red seam binding and I have recycled the holly leaves & berries from an old cracker, sprinkled with Twinklets diamond dust, all finished off with some more hand stitching.  Almost forgot some Stickles Crystal glitter for the candle to give a warm glow.
I am entering this card into the Lili of the Valley challenge this week which is 'Warm and Cozy'
Thanks for looking, take care, Jane x
