Tilda With Lace Hood And A new Challenge At LHOSM

Hello, lovely blogger friend's.
I hope you are well.
Today see's a new challenge at Lovely Haenglar Or Sweet Magnolia and this time our challenge theme is GLITTER IT UP!
Our wonderful sponsor for this challenge is The Ribbon Girl with a £10 voucher for one lucky winner!
Also, we are have a DT CALL! We are looking for several new DT members.
This challenge will last until 10th January 2016 and the new DT will be announced on 15th January 2016.

I have made another Christmas card.
I used Tilda With Lace Hood from A Little Christmas Collection 2015.
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 large frame frilly # 2 and Maja Design Enjoying Outdoors papers from LLC
Other dies used are Cheery Lynn English tea party doily and French pastry doily. Marianne Design Ivy circle and Christmas tree 1. Sizzix on the edge snow flurries. Joy Crafts Ice crystal circle and Vintage flourishes holly leaves. Magnolia Doohickey lovely fence.
I have inked the die cuts with Tim Holtz Vintage photo distress ink.
The pretty pink 'Marie Therese' lace and pearl trim are from LLC

A couple of close ups of the flower arrangement and tree.
The larch cone bark star and white flower spray's are from LLC The 30mm light Ivory wild rose, 25mm pink open roses, white lilies and white stamens are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
I coated the tree with glamour dust before adding some Snow - Tex onto it.
The gorgeous 28mm snowflake diamante enbellishment ion top of the tree s from The Ribbon Girl
I also used Snow - Tex on the arrangement and fence.

A close look at Tilda.
I used Hobby Art snowflake stamp for the background and sprinkled Frantage shabby white embossing enamel around the image and adhered a length of oval white pearl trim from The Ribbon Girl around the outside of the image.
I used glamour dust on the lace trim and tassel on Tilda's hat and dotted her cheeks with a white gelly roll pen.

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