Tilda for Mother's Day plus Tilda for Christmas

Hi all because I have not been well I have spent some of my time crafting hoping that it would be good therapy, I have made two cards using just two of my beloved Tilda stamps. I may have forgotten some of the things I have used mainly because I feel as if I am in a different world.
My first card is for Christmas I have used Bearlymine Xmas papers, Candy Cane and Snowflakes I have mounted all papers onto red card stock.  I used one of my new Spellbinders Die Cuts, I think it is labels no 25, I have also used my Marianne Snowflake die cut.  I have coloured Tilda with promarkers then added gold flake glitter to her headband, dress and the tree finally I added gold rhinestones.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
My second card, also featuring one of my beloved Tilda's, is a card for my Mum for Mother's Day.  I really got involved with this one as I made it from scratch without any template or instructions.  I knew what I wanted so I drew the design onto scrap paper when I felt I had the measurements correct I used Centura Pearlescent A3 card to create my design.
I used my Grand Calibur and die cuts for the aperture inside then used the same scalloped Nesties to make the black frame, the black flower and the corners are all die cuts.
I used black card to mount the papers on, I made a rosette for the inside of the card then created a bigger rosette for the front, I stamped MUM in my alphabets and used a star dream stamp for a little added extra, I then coloured the letters with promarkers cut them out and used glossy accents to make them shine.
I added some pink flowers to the inside, I stamped Tilda twice, coloured her with promarkers then cut her out and 3'd her with silicone, one to the inside and one to the outside.
I cut some very fine strips of black card then curled them with my bone folder I added them for a bit of extra effect when I added the centre rose, finally I added some pink and black gems. 
This picture below shows the inside of the card. 
The final picture below shows the top of the card, I will be writing my own sentiment in a bit nearer the time of Mother's day. 
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Well that is it from me today, I am off to start playing catch up on my commenting, I have already started but took a break to post these.
I will be posting my new candy tomorrow which is a selection of crafting goodies.
Hugs to all.
