Frosty Tilda

Hello from a rather beautiful and sunny day in Bournemouth.  Gosh its so nice to have some sun and what a difference it makes.

I've popped on quickly to show you a Christmas card I've made the idea for which I got from a card magazine. 

The aperture was cut using a Spellbinders die and quite a few other dies were used aswell, gosh what did we use when we didn't have these I'd be lost without mine!!!!  I've used a Tilda which has been coloured with Prisma pencils this time.  She's one of my faves I keep going back to her even with all the new ones around.

The sentiment is by Whimsy and the music notes behind is a Magnolia stamp.  The frosty border was cut from glitter card.

Everything has been inked and edged and stickled to within an inch of its life.  The pearl brads in the doohickey flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and are seriously yummy.  Once I'd stuck all the flowers on it occured to me that maybe it would be top heavy but it actually stands up fine and is really quite sturdy considering quite a large chunk has been cut away.

Challenges I would like to enter

Gotta dash now the kiddies are wanting their tea so I hope you are all well and are having a good week. 

Take care and happy crafting.
