Tilda With Little Rudolf.

Good afternoon, crafty bloggers.
I have made another Christmas card. This time featuring Tilda With Little Rudolf.
I just love this image.

I have used GoKreate large frilly frames #2 for the shape of the card with 300gsm white
Conqueror card.
I stamped Tilda With Little Rudolf onto Neenah card with Memento "Toffee Crunch" ink and cut the image out with a Spellbinders floral oval die. I have inked around the edges of the floral oval with
Tim Holtz "Tea Dye" distress ink.
The papers are Frosty Christmas from Lili Of The Valley. I have also inked around the edges of the papers with "Tea Dye" distress ink.
I have coloured the image with Polychromos pencils and surrounded it with shabby white Frantage embossing enamel from Live & Love Crafts.
I have used  Tim Holtz On The Edge "Snowflurries" die, inked around the edges with "Tea Dye" distress ink and placed them in between the papers adding a 5mm blue pearl onto a couple of the snowflakes.
I have inked the bottom of a Magnolia Doohickey "Coffee Lattice" die with "Tea Dye" distress ink and adhered 25mm pale blue satin ribbon and lace from The Ribbon Girl.
My super bloggy friend sent me the "Coffee Lattice" die.
I used 2mm sticky pads to adhere the image and placed a piece of cheesecloth behind it.
The cheesecloth is from Ebay.
For the floral arrangement I have used a 25mm Antique blue rose, 15mm blue roses and 10mm white roses all from Wild Orchid Crafts. The white Kort & Godt rolled roses and white flower spray are from Live & Love Crafts.I have placed some woodland branches and a holly flourish between the arrangement.
The woodland branches are a Martha Stewart punch and the holly flourish die is Cheery Lynn.
The Memory Box Leaping Deer and La-La Land Heart Fence die cuts are from Dies To Die For.
 I have Frantaged them with shabby white embossing enamel.
Tracey always sends me a few of her die cuts whenever I place an order with her.
Lovely lady.
The snowflake in the right top corner is called snowflake 5 by Cheery Lynn.
I have inked the edges with "Tea Dye" distress ink and added a 5mm blue pearl to the centre.
The sentiment is a freebie from and I have inked around the edges with
 "Tea Dye" distress ink.
Inside the card has been decorated to compliment the front.
I have used Snow-Tex from Live & Love Crafts on the flowers and branches and placed 5mm blue pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts onto each of the rolled roses.

Here is a close up of Tilda With Little Rudolf.
I have added ArtDeco Glamour Dust to Tilda's pom-pom, hat trim and waistcoat.
I used Glossy Accents 3D gloss on Rudolf's nose and dotted his and Tilda's cheeks with an
opaque white Inkssentials pen.
I hope you like my card?
I am entering my card into the following super challenge's.
