Tilda in Blue

Hi all hope you are well, I think I have found not only my health again but my love of crafting, can I thank you all once again for your kindness to me while I have been going through some rough times.  I have lost a few of my faithful followers but maybe I can tempt them back with some of my creations.
I made this card for the following challenges
I bought this Tilda very recently, I have wanted her for so long, in fact I was inspired by a Christmas card that I had last year from Shirley aka Nannieflash.  I have the card pinned on my wall by my craft station and look at it everyday along with other cards that I have received.
I used a bp from Elusive Images the central blue strip is pearlescent paper punched with an EK Success border punch.  I coloured Tilda with Prisma Pencils and Sansodor, I added Diamond glitter to the fairy lights on the tips of the tree and Tilda's headband.  I found some silver metallic thread which I used crossed over.  The flower is handmade and well scrunched using two different colours of pearlescent paper and punches, I also added Diamond glitter to the edges, I used a flower brad for the centre and added a snowflake charm.  I then added some punched Holly leaves at the top with, once again, Diamond Glitter, the sentiment I stamped with Momento Black Tuxedo Ink.
I hope you have enjoyed looking at my card and maybe it has inspired you, thank you for visiting I am sending hugs to all and see you later.
