Poinsettia Tilda And A New Challenge At LHOSM

Hello, lovely blogger friend's.
I hope you are well?
Not long to go now until the big day!
Today see's a brand new challenge at Lovely Haenglar Or Sweet Magnolia so for one whole month our challenge theme is.................ANYTHING GOES
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 Poinsettia Tilda from Magnolia Aspen Holidays 2016 Collection.
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Bristol board extra smooth cardstock and cut out using a Joy Crafts Noor! oval.
I have coloured the image with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils.

For the shape of my card I used GoKreate large frame frilly #2 and Maja Design Coffee In The Arbour - Feel The Grass Between Your Toes.
Other dies used are; Marianne Design Anja's Vintage decoration and Ivy circle.
Spirit of Christmas snowflake border.
 Joy Crafts ice crystal circle and Vintage flourishes holly leaves and Cheery Lynn pine branches.
I have inked the die cuts with Tim Holtz Vintage photo distress ink.
The 'Marie Therese' lace and white double row pearl trim are from Live & Love Crafts

For my flower arrangements I used 30mm light Ivory wild rses and 25mm olive green open roses from Wild Orchid Crafts.
The white flower spray, larch pine cones, red beaded berries, large frosted berries, Vintage star pin red vax cord and beautiful bronze Oriental lantern are all from Live & Love Crafts
I have coated the arrangements with Snow - Tex.

A close look at adorable Poinsettia Tilda.
I surrounded the image with shabby white embossing enamel and adhered a length of 2mm white pearl string around the outside of the image.
I used Ranger gold liquid pearls in the centre of the poinsettia and adhered a few dark red 3mm s/a pearl flatbacks around the image.
I dotted Tilda's cheeks with a white gelly roll pen.

Inside the card is decorated with design paper and the smallest of a 
GoKreate large frame frilly #2 die cut.
