Tilda Sends Her Love


I absolutely love the new Magnolia Christmas stamps this year, but there just hasn't been enough time to play lately!  This Tilda with Snow Heart is one of my favourites of the collection, and these Authentique papers are my favourite Christmas papers this year too, so I just had to pair them together!


I absolutely love the May Arts silk ribbon, and have been hoarding this red ribbon for months now, saving it for Christmas!  As much as it killed me to cut into it, I guess I couldn't save it forever!  :)  I've also used some Dazzling Diamonds and Martha Stewart Tinsel Glitter to add some sparkle and shine.

Copic colours:  skin- E000, 00, 21, 11 hair- E41, 31, 34, 35 dress etc- R37, 37, 39 
scarf etc- YG61, 63, 67 shoes- E41, 42, 43, 44 airbrushed background - T0, 1

challenges:
Simon Says Stamp - sketch... Creative Card Crew - Tis the Season... Cupcake Craft Challenges - don't look into the light... iCopic - Holidays... Totally Gorjuss - Let it Snow... ABC Challenge - F is for Frosty... ABC Christmas - Yippee it's almost Christmas... Inky Impressions - Winter Fun... Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge - Merry Christmas... Pixie Cottage - Anything Christmas... The Squirrel & The Fox - Christmas... 

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

Hugs,

Oh Christine, this is just so gorgeous.. I love the colors and your design.. your Tilda is so adorable and I DON'T have her wahhh but guess I will have to survive.. have most of the mini's and am happy with them.. as for the silk ribbon, even my wholesale store is hoarding her silk ribbon.. can't figure out why unless we are having a silk war?? Haven't figured that one out.. I have some, but most is not pure silk.. anyway, I LOVE your card and it is pure beauty!!!
Hugs, Jean
