Christmas Candle Tilda

Hi everyone,

 Well, I had the most wonderful time at the NEC yesterday, there was so much to look at and drool over and of course I spent all of my pennies on lots of crafty bits and pieces and got myself a couple of new stamps too, well it would be rude not to lol. The downside of it was that it was very busy and at times it was hard to get to see some of the goodies on the stands, hey ho that's what you have to expect when you go to such a big show.  

Anyway on with today's challenge for Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia and our theme this time is 'Sparkle'. 

With this theme, I had to make another Christmas card didn't I? and I have used one of the delicious Tilda's from the new collection 'Waiting For Christmas'. She is called 'Christmas Candle Tilda'. She is coloured with Copics and a few highlights have been added with Prisma pencils. For the falling snow I have sprinkled some Frantage around the outside of the image and the lying snow is Glamour Dust. Behind the image I've placed some white corrugated card, sitting on top of that is a  Noor oval die. The corner and leaves are also Noor dies, which have been covered with Glamour Dust. The Joy Bingo sentiment is also by Noor. As you can see I have used a fair few Noor products, because I love them and I am so excited they have opened up an online store in the U.K. Do you know they are having a DT call?

The poinsettia is very shimmery and the ribbon is a gorgeous faux silk. I've added some , white guipure lace, silver tinsel twine and a Diamante snowflake to the centre of the bow which are all available at Ribbon Girl.

Skin: E11, 21, 00, 000, 0000

    1. Hi Judy, I got the corrugated card from a craft show at the beginning of this year. I am pretty sure it was Anna Marie Crafts that sold it.
