Elegant Christmas Tilda

Hi to you all and thanks for dropping by. I'm beginning to get on a bit of a roll now with christmas cards and have another one to show you today.

For this card I have followed a sketch



I coloured Tilda with pencil crayons and used gold & red gel pens for the wings, headband and to highlight the stitching on her dress. The background paper is from Bearly Mine Designs and the embossed cards I was given last year and all I know is that it was done with an embossing folder but not the make. I used Memory Box die 98146 Frostyville Border for the snowflake border and the patterned border that Tilda is sitting on was cut from an old christmas card. (I knew it would come in useful one day!!) Then I added a couple of red gems from my stash to finish it off.




I shall enter this in the following challenges
The Sketchy challenge 'Sandy's sketch'
The Official Magnolia Inspiration challenge 'Christmas in July - colour and theme'
The Crafty Pad challenge 'Paper Piecing'
