Tilda In Cosy Coat And A New Challenge At Simply Magnolia

 Good morning, crafty blogger's.
I hope you are well?
We have a new challenge starting today at Simply Magnolia and this time our challenge theme is
Our wonderful sponsor for this challenge is Stamp & Create
I have made a Christmas card. The first one of 2015. Lol!!! I am going to be making my Christmas cards early as I had so many orders for them that I had to turn people down.

 I used Tilda In Cosy Coat from the Waiting for Christmas 2014 Collection.
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Neenah cardstock and cut out using a CartUs oval and then matted onto a Joy Crafts Noor Design oval.
I have coloured the image with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils.

For my shaped card I used KoCreate large frame frilly #2 and Maja Design Vintage Autumn Basics papers.
Other dies used are La - La - Land heart doily border, Sizzix snow flurries, Marianne Design ivy circle. deer and Christmas tree 1. Joy Crafts Billes flourishes and Cheery lynn pine branches.
I have inked the die cuts with Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink and coated the snow flurries with lots of yummy Snow - Tex. I love the stuff!
The pretty lace across the bottom of the card is from Live & love Crafts.

I coated the Christmas tree with Twinklets Diamond Dust and decorated it with a string of 2mm white pearls. The shabby bark star and jingle bells are from Live & Love Crafts. I coated the star and bells with Snow - Tex.
The Vintage digi sentiment is from Pink Gem Designs I also added some Snow - Tex to the sentiment.
For the arrangement I used a selection of flowers, frosted beads and a pine cone from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live & Love Crafts. The arrangement is coated with Snow - Tex.
I told you I love the stuff! Lol!!!

Here is a close up of Tilda In Cosy Coat.
I added Ranger white liquid pearls to the centre of the snow flakes and surrounded the image with Snow - Tex.
For the fur on Tilda's coat I have added glamour dust and applied glossy accents to the buttons.
I dotted Tilda's cheeks with a Inkssentials opaque white pen.

Inside the card is decorated with design paper and a Joy Crafts Noor Design oval.

I hope you like my card?
