The Day Before X-mas Stocking Tilda.

Good evening, crafty blogger's.
I hope you are well?
I have made another shaped Christmas card. This one is for my cousin in Canada.
I have made the shaped card with 300gsm white Conqueror card and GoKreate frilly frames #2.
The papers are called "Woodland Wishes" from Lili Of The Valley.
I have lightly sanded the edges of the papers.
The white doily and pretty lace are from Ebay.
I have die cut a Sizzix circle with Neenah cardstock and stamped The Day Before X~mas Stocking tilda onto it with "Rich Cocoa" Memento ink.
I have coloured The Day Before X-mas Stocking Tilda with Polychromos pencils and sprinkled Frantage shabby white embossing enamel from Live & Love Crafts around the image then I inked around the outside of the circle with Tim Holtz "tea dye" distress ink.
I die cut a Sizzix scalloped circle with Neenah cardstock and cut another with green paper. I matted them together then I adhered the image onto the scalloped circle and used sticky pads to place it to the centre of the card.
The sentiment is from Lili Of The Valley. I have stamped it onto Neenah cardstock with "rich cocoa" Memento ink and inked around the edges with "tea dye" distress ink.
I die cut a Spellbinders scalloped circle with green paper and adhered the sentiment onto it.
The poinsettia die is La-La Land. I have inked the edges with "Tea dye" distress ink and put a green brad through the centre.
My super bloggy friend sent me the die cuts and brad.
 I have attached silver plated curb chain and rings to hang the stocking charm from the back of the brad. The stocking charm is from The Ribbon Girl.
The trees and deer are Mariannes Design dies.
I have inked around the edges of the trees with "tea dye" distress ink and covered the trees with Snow~Tex from Live & Love Crafts.
I used shabby white embossing enamel to Frantage the deer.
For the flower arrangement I have used a 25mm olive green rose, 15mm dark red roses and 10mm white roses from Wild Orchid Crafts.
The 20mm white roses and Kort & Godt white chrysanthemums are from The Ribbon Girl.
The frosted berries are from Live & Love Crafts.
I have placed woodland branches between the arrangement inking the edges with "tea dye"
distress ink.
The woodland branch punch is Martha Stewart.
I have added ArtDeco glamour dust to the roses on Tilda's dress and dotted her cheeks with a Inkssentials opaque white pen.
Inside the card is decorated.
I hope you like my creation.
I am entering my card into the following super challenges;
