Tilda With Candycone And A Shaped Card.

Good afternoon, crafty bloggers.
I hope you are well!
Today I have made a shaped Christmas card featuring Tilda With Candycone from the
Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection.
I have made the shaped card using GoKreate large frame frilly #2 with
300gsm white Conqueror card.
The gorgeous papers are called Frosty Christmas from Lili Of The Valley.
I have coloured Tilda With Candycone with Polychromos pencils and sprayed the image with Crafters Companion Spray & Sparkle adhering three 5mm blue pearls in the top corner of the image.
The white doily is from Ebay and the pretty "Jessica" Guipure lace is from The Ribbon Girl.
I have used shabby blue Fran~tage on the Memory Box Flowering Christmas Tree die cut and added 3mm white pearls to the flowers.
The Flowering Christmas tree die is from Dies To Die For.
I have die cut a Cheery Lynn Snowflake 5 and sprayed it with Spray & Sparkle.
My super bloggy friend sent me some Twinklets Diamond Dust and beautiful brads.
I have removed the centre of a white Poinsettia and coated the petals with Glossy Accents. I then dipped the flower into Twinklets Diamond Dust and placed a blue brad through the centre.
I attached a silver plated jump ring onto the back of the brad with some silver plated 2mm curb chain and attached a snowflake charm from The Ribbon Girl with a jump ring and coated the Poinsetta and charm with Snow~Tex from Live & Love Crafts.
The chain and rings are from Ebay.
The flower arrangement consists of Kort & Godt chrysanthemum's and rolled roses from
25mm antique blue rose, 15mm pale blue roses and white gypsophila all from Wild Orchid Crafts.
I have punched and placed Martha Stewart Woodland Branches between the flower arrangement.
The sentiment is from Lili Of The Valley. 
 I inked the sentiment stamp with grey Memento ink and matted it onto a die cut Spellbinders scallop circle adding tiny blue rhinestones to some of the snowflakes
Inside the card has been decorated with the pretty papers to compliment the front.

I have dotted her cheeks with an Inkssentials opaque white pen and added white liquid pearls around the image.
Here is a close up of the flowers.
I have added 5mm blue pearls to the rolled roses and coated the entire arrangement including the woodland branches with Snow~Tex.
I hope you like my shaped Christmas card?
