Cosy Tilda And A New Challenge At LHOSM

Hello, lovely blogger friends.
I hope you are well.
Today see's our new fortnightly challenge at Lovely Haenglar Or Sweet Magnolia and this time our challenge theme is....................ADD A SENTIMENT
our wonderful sponsor for this challenge is the lovely Sandy at Live & Love Crafts with a £10 voucher for one lucky winner!
I have made another Christmas card.

I used Cosy Tilda 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.
I have coloured the image with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils and matted the finished image onto a Joy Crafts Noor Design oval.

For my shaped card I used GoKreate XXL frilly frame #5 and Maja Design Home For The Holidays papers from LLC
Other dies used are; La La Land heart doily border, Sizzix on the edge snow flurries, Marianne Design Ivy circle, Joy Crafts Ice crystal circle, Vintage flourishes holly leaves and Christmas Winter sentiment. Cheery Lynn French pastry doily.
I have inked the die cuts with Tim Holtz Vintage photo distress ink.
I used lots of gorgeous products on my Christmas card from Live & Love Crafts
Here is a list; White "Marie Therese" Lace, Pink "Pastello" Lace, 6mm Flatback Pearl String, Pink Mulberry Paper Poppies, Punch and Vanilla Cupcake Pomegranates, White Flower Spray, Larch Cones, Whitewashed Cinnamon Sticks, Shabby White Liberty Bells, Star Anise, Vintage Crystal Star Pin and Snow - Tex.

A couple of close ups of the floral arrangements.
The 30mm light Ivory wild roses, 25mm baby pink open roses and white stamens are from WOC.
I have tied the liberty bells to the cinnamon sticks with natural hemp twine from 
The arrangements have been coated with Snow - Tex.

I tied the bow with a length of baby pink 25mm satin ribbon and coated the Star Anise with Snow - Tex and adhered a 5mm pink pearl to the centre.

A close look at adorable Cosy Tilda.
I surrounded the image with Frantage shabby white embossing enamel and adhered a length of White Tiny Pom Pom Bobble Trim from The ribbon Girl around the outside of the image.
The 3mm Sugar & Spice Pearl Flatbacks are also from The Ribbon Girl

Inside the card is decorated with design paper and a Spellbinders floral oval.

I hope you like my card.
