Lil Lolita Boutique Challenge #8 - Christmas in July!!

Oh yes, You've seen this challenge pop up all over the place this month and we thought it would be lovely to see the Lil Lolita's all decked out for the holidays! So, dig out your Christmas papers and pick out your favorite Lil Lolita for some festive holiday cards. Don't forget - EVERY week we're GIVING away a Lil Lolita stamp (check out the blog for details on which one) to the challenge winner!
ETA: photo, LOL - I fell asleep last night before adding the picture of my card after setting my blog to post for me. Ahhh. well, it happens, right?!

For my card, I used the NEW 30's Lylah - oh my, I do love her!! In fact, I colored 3 all at the same time b/c I was having so much fun. I've been trying to figure out how to color a creamy sort for clothes and such so let me know if you like her jacket. I used E50 & E53. I think it could use one more color but that was all I have at the moment.

I also followed the sketch seen HERE at The Beary Scrap Challenge. I love their challenges and they have them 2x's a month so it's MUCH easier to get it in at some point. :)

That's all for me - do check out the Lil Lolita Boutique blog for all the DT ladies - they did amazing with this challenge - almost gets me excited for Christmas...almost! LOL I'm still enjoying summer. ;)

Gorgeous Christmas card Carisa, Lylah looks ready to do some serious holiday shopping!
As for the creamy jacket, if can get your hands on an E51 I find that it has a bit of an orangier cast than E50 and E53 so it really helps make a cream combo pop when used with those two. :)
