Holiday Mini Bailout #10: Christmas Dolly

We're down to the last three cards in my Holiday Mini Bailout series and today I have Card #10 for you. This series is all about quick makes and since the cards measure only 4"x3.5"you can get away with scraps of papers and left over embellies. There simply isn't enough room for frills and fancies. More importantly, with Christmas only a week away, there isn't enough time.

Here's Card #10:

No patterned papers, just cream CS embossed with Swiss Dots for the background. The focal image is from PolkaDoodle's Gingerbread Twist  CD,  layered on some green CS cut with Spellbinders Beaded Oval die. To finish, a  twine bow.

Here's a close-up of the image. I coloured her with SN marker. You could use a pre-coloured  digi and this card can be finished in a flash.

Inside I stamped a simple sentiment from Chocolate Baroque's "Warm Winter Wishes" set. 

I'm also playing along with Sparkles Christmas Challenge #23 "Button or Bow; Party Time Tuesday #98 "Kid's Christmas"; Challenges for Everybody #4 "Anything Goes" and Sparkles Monthly Challenge #39 "Anything Goes".

Thanks for visiting. Tomorrow we have my penultimate card in this Holiday Mini Bailout series. How fast time flies when you're having fun completely stressed out! See you tomorrow, ladies...
