Red & White Tilda

Hi all I would like to wish everyone a very
HAPPY NEW YEAR
I don't normally make New Year resolutions but this time I made an exception, I am making Christmas cards for 2012, I am determined not to leave it until the last moment and have to buy any, lol, I really hope that I can keep this resolution, if I do it will be the first ever, lol.
I have made a card that I hope will suit the following challenges:
For my card I have used one of my beloved Tilda stamps, I stamped her with SU Razzleberry ink and coloured her with Copics.  The papers are from Bearly Mine Designs, Christmas Swirls and Christmas Wonderland sets.  I have mounted the papers onto red mirri card.  I used the TH Clock face die cut but cut it in half for a sort of arch effect for Tilda.  The snowflakes are Marianne Die Cuts I used the red mirri card then added white pearls for their centres, I stamped a LOTV sentiment with Versamark Dazzle and heat embossed it with white powder. I added both white and red ribbon plus a couple of bows. I used white gel pen on Tilda's hair for a snow effect then on her dress and socks to make it look a bit like stitching


Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge is offering candy to all entrants and it doesn't have to be a Christmas card so pop over and have a look.

Well that is it from me today I will be resuming my visit to you all a little later but in the mean time I hope that you all have a fantastic day.
Hugs to all
