Tilda with Gift Tags

Hello my lovelies,

I hope you are having a good week, one more day to go and it's the weekend - yay!! 

We have a new challenge today at Marvelous Magnolia and our theme this time is the ever popular 'Anything Goes'.

I love Christmas and Christmas cards are my favourite type of card to make and even though it is only June this was a great opportunity to make my first Christmas card of the year.  I chose to colour up Tilda with Gift Tags. I stamped her onto a spellbinders die (Decorative Elements Labels Eight) and coloured her with Copics and Spectrum Noir pencils and added some Frantage around the outside which gives a lovely snowy effect. Tucked behind her is some Cheesecloth fabric. The papers are Maja, but I can't remember which collection they are from. The fir cones are from my local woods and I've painted on some Gesso. The flowers are from WOC which have been sprinkled with some Diamond Dust to give a real frosty look. The lovely tag at the top left hand side is a Magnolia Wrapped So Lovely die to which I've added a few pearls and used some Bakers Twine to tie on some sweet little Rusty Bells from the Ribbon Girl. The white leaves are a Cheery Lynn die. The sentiment has been printed on my computer and wound round a cotton reel. Just clink on a picture at the bottom of this post to take you directly to the product.
