Christmas Tilda.

Good afternoon, crafty bloggers.
My super bloggy friend introduced me to Magnolia stamps just before Christmas 2012.
From the very first time I coloured one I fell in love with them.
I have wanted to colour one of the very first Tilda's for some time now so I treated myself to Christmas Tilda. I bought her from Sirstampalot. 
I have made another shaped card featuring Christmas tilda.
I hope you like my first Christmas card of 2014? Lol!!!

I have used Neenah cardstock to cut a Spellbimders floral oval and stamped Christmas Tilda onto it with Memento rich cocoa ink.
I have coloured Tilda with Prismcolor and Polychromos pencils.
I sprinkled some Frantage shabby white embossing enamel from Live & Love Crafts around the coloured image and inked the edges of the floral oval with Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink.
For the shaped card I have used  300gsm white Conqueror card and GoKreate large frame frilly #2 from Cuttingedgecrafts. 
The papers are called Frosty Christmas from Lili Of The Valley. 
The white doily and gorgeous lace are both from Ebay. You can find the lace HERE. 
 I have adhered tiny blue rhinestones onto the doily.
I have used quite a few Doohickey dies. They are lovely fence, spruce firs and bloomy tag.
The bloomy tag was a surprise Christmas gift from my super bloggy friend.
I have inked around the edges of all the Doohickey dies with Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink.

I have taken a photo of the card with the bloomy tag removed.
I stamped  Magnolia Vintage Merry Christmas Postmark from Sirstampalot onto the tag with Memento toffee crunch ink and sprinkled shabby white embossing enamel around the sentiment.
I have tied a bow with white shabby seam binding from Live & Love Crafts through the tag's eyelet.
The filigree corner is la-la-land and I have inked the edges with tea dye distress ink.

For the flower arrangement I have used a white 25mm wild rose and 20mm baby blue roses from
White Kort & Godt chrysanthemums from The Ribbon Girl. 
White flower spray and white poppies from Live & Love Crafts. 
For the foliage between the flower arrangement I have used Cheery Lynn pine branches and Martha Stewart woodland branches.
I have inked the edges of the branches with tea dye distress ink.

Inside the card is decorated with Frosty Christmas paper and a Spellbinders floral oval. I inked the edges of the floral oval with tea dye distress ink.

I used ArtDeco glamour dust on  her pom pom and adhered 2mm white pearls around her.

I am entering my creation into the following super challenges;
