Santa Baby ...
I have a flirty little somethin' to share today :) The cute image and sentiments are all part of Santa Baby by My Favorite Things. I colored with Copics and Prismacolor pencils, except for the paper pieced wallpaper. The designer papers are all from Basic Grey's Eskimo Kisses line. I wanted to gussy up the bottom with some ruffled ribbon. I've been seeing so many ruffled and other cool ribbon treatments in blogland, and now I know why - Moxie Fab World's Not Your Regular Ruffles contest! The deadline is midnight, Monday, 10/26, so you've still got a little bit of time to participate if you want to get in on the fun!
For my ribbon treatment, I hand-basted and gathered some wide green silk ribbon by May Arts. Layered over that is first some wide white ricrac and next a length of red polka dot ribbon tied in a knot. A couple of other extras: Santa's buttons are black Swarovski crystals, and the beard and fur are coated with white liquid applique.
Here's a look at the cute sentiment on the inside:
