In The Snow Ski Tilda And A new Challenge At Simply Magnolia.

Good morning, crafty blogger's.
I hope you are well?
Today we have a new challenge starting at Simply Magnolia and this time around our challenge theme is Layer It Up!
Our wonderful sponsor for this challenge is Crafty Ribbons

Here is the third of my commissioned Christmas cards although I am not entirely 
happy with it.

I used In The Snow Ski Tilda from the Winter Wonderland 2013 Collection.
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Neenah cardstock and cut out using a Spellbinders stately circle.
I have coloured the image with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils.

For my shaped card I used Go Kreate large frame frilly #2 and Maja Design Vintage Frost Basics papers.
Other dies used are La - La - land heart doily border, Joy Crafts Christmas ice crystal border and Billes flourishes, Marianne Design Ivy circle and Christmas tree 1, Cheery Lynn snowflake 5 and pine branches. I lightly sanded the papers and inked the die cuts with Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink.
The pretty lace is from Live & Love Crafts and the blue and white pearls are from The Ribbon Girl.
I computer generated the sentiment in MS Word using a vintage Christmas digital stamp from
 Pink Gem Designs and added a little Frantage shabby white embossing enamel.

I used a selection of flowers, pine cone, beaded berries and an apple from Live & Love Crafts and The Ribbon Girl. I coated the arrangements and tree with Snow - Tex.

Here is a close look at Tilda. Isn't she adorable?
I used lots of Snow - Tex I love this white stuff!
I also added some glamour dust at the bottom of the image but, it doesn't show here.
Tilda's cheeks are dotted with a Inkssentials opaque white pen.

Inside the card is decorated with Maja design paper and a Spellbinders stately circle.
