A Cuddly Christmas

Sometimes you just gotta use non traditional colors for Christmas cards.  I think these look pretty good on this adorable image.  They don't get much cuter than this.  It's  Pachela Studios Toby Tumble Christmas Tea.  from Cuddly Buddly. 
This week the Cuddly Buddly challenge #19 is a recipe.  So pick your image, find a sketch and then use the recipe - 3 Flowers, 2 buttons and 1 ribbon.  I cheated a little, my buttons are actually brads and I used two ribbons and twine.  It's hard to see in this photo that under the crochet   ribbon there's a yellow ribbon. 

Here's the deets:
stamp - Cuddly Buddly "Pachela Studios Toby Tumble Christmas Tea"
ink - hp printer
paper - Bazzill "String of Pearls" cs; scrap of blue cs; My Mind's Eye "Lost and Found - Sunshine" dp
miscellaneous - copics; Prima flowers; nesties Lacey Square die; brads; SU crochet ribbon and so saffrron ribbon; Polar White Flower Soft; burlap twine; bunny charm
