Harriet all dressed for Christmas!!

It's Friday and you know what that means... yup, it's Bellarific Friday!! This week's theme is "Wild Card" so anything goes! Woo-hoo! As you all know, I'm still working steady on my Christmas cards, so I gussied Harriet up all Christmas-ee and I think she's purr-dee!!

I started by stamping her onto some SU Very Vanilla CS and colored her with my Copics to match this cute DP from My Minds Eye. Love those polka dots, so I HAD to color her cupcakes to match. My niece is THE CUPCAKE QUEEN and loves ANYTHING to do with cupcakes, so this little card will be perfect for her this Christmas. Pssst! She's just as cute as Harriet too! he-he! I know she's gonna love this card!
To add a little contrast to the polka dots, I used another coordinating piece of DP for the lower portion of the card, and added a scalloped lacy border on the top and the bottom. I matted the DP with some burgundy CS from DCWV and stitched around the edges. Of course, ya'll know me and my ribbon - can't have a card without it hardly.... so, I added this gor-juss striped ribbon tied in a big 'ol bow and a burgundy button in the center. Hey, the bigger the bow the better! LOVE IT!! Ok, so I cut Harriet out with my oval Nesties and adhered her to the card with a few dimensionals. This sentiment is by Stamping Bella too, and I thought it was the perfect addition to my SUH-WEET card. To finish my little Christmas cutie, I added some Glamour Dust to the tops of the cupcakes (hey, gotta have sprinkles!) and a gem to the flower in her hair. And there you have Christmas card #35!! Yay!!
