Tilda on Christmas Morning

Hi all, it seems to have been such a long time that I have posted a card other than DT projects.
I have been visiting you all and I have been wowed by the beautiful creations that I have seen, you have inspired me so much that I decided to make this card.
I have used one of my favourite Tilda stamps.  I used a Spellbinder scalloped circle die and stamped Tilda onto it, I stamped her again coloured her with Copics then cut her out so I could 3'd her and not have her covered by the TH Clock die cut.  I used red mirri card for the  Clock die, I also used a Marianne snowflake die and Christmas tree die cut.  I used black mirri card for the tree and one of the snowflakes.  The papers are Basic Grey all of which have been mounted onto black card, I added a silver Dufex sentiment which I also mounted onto black card.  Finally I added some gems and Cosmic Twinkles Silver Glitter to the edges of the papers and the tree.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I thought you might like to see some new pictures of Little Jessie and an update.
She is beautiful and bringing me so much joy, even though I am still grieving for my Po, it is getting easier.
Jessie has grown and loves both her food and toys.

I would like to thank you all so much for visiting, I hope that you like my card I will say bye for now big hugs see you later.
