Merry Christmas Tilda

Hello everyone,

I hope you are having a lovely restful weekend. I can't believe I only have two weeks left of my holiday (not that I'm greedy), but the time has flown by and I am so enjoying being at home. I've not spent as much time in craft room as I would have liked, but unfortunately the chores still have to be done. Phil is off for the next two weeks so we will be out and about as well. 

I have made another Christmas card using the gorgeous Merry Christmas Tilda. The shape has been cut from a Go Kreate Large frame #6. I stamped her onto a pretty Joy Crafts die and coloured her with Copics and Prisma Pencils. The papers are by Pion, but they may have been discontinued as I can't seem to find them. The corner (top left hand side)  has been covered with Frantage and is a Marianne die. Tucked behind that is some cheesecloth. On the top of the corner I've made a bow out of Bakers Twine and added a snowflake charm. The swirl is a Magnolia Doohickeys die. The roses have some Diamond Dust sprinkled over them as I think it gives a nice frosty feel. The little frame I made out of of Martha Stewart Clay and a Mod Podge mould and the alphabet letters are by Docrafts . The pearl string,lace, berries  and ribbon is from my stash.

The tag is a Magnolia Doohickeys die.
