OCC blue and green

<KENOX S860  / Samsung S860>
Hi everyone, hope you’re having a good week. A card today for OCC where the challenge is to use blue and green. I used the pretty Tilda with presents and modified her so that I could use her for a birthday card by adding a little bow to her hair where there’s a sprig of holly. She’s coloured with distress inks with some spica glitter pen and stickles over the top and cut out with a nesties die. The background paper is by Magnolia, I’ve spritzed it with glimmer mist, faux stitched and distressed the edges and sponged with distress ink. The strip of blue card is is also spritzed with glimmer mist (wish it would show up!), it’s also punched with an EK Success scalloped border punch. TFL.
