Christmas Eve Tilda

    Hi, everyone!

    Eventually, I've succeeded to finish my card for the Magnolia-licious inspirational challenge. I thought I wouldn't make it with all the Christmas cards that had to be finished in time but I didn't want to miss the challenge either. The image provided for the challenge is absolutely very inspirational, I had tons of ideas in my head but I couldn't even make up my mind which Tilda to use. In the end, I went for the lovely Christmas Eve Tilda partly because I haven't used it in a while, partly because I needed a present there.

    The papers are digital from Webster's Pages - Waiting for Santa Collection. The flowers and the presents are made by myself. I've already given the details of how I made the roses in a previous post; the presents are pieces of plastic cut from an eyelets storage box - which you can see in the picture, just to have an idea,
- then I used the napkin technique to add the ˝clothing˝ and added some gold peel-offs on them. The other embelishments are Marianne design  swirls  and McGill pine leaf punch which I rarely leave out of my cards. The lace is from my stash and the sentiment is computer generated (the Romanian equivalent for ˝Merry Christmas!˝).
    The challenges I'm entering are:
    Magnolia-licious - Inspiration Challenge
    Stamp Something - Christmas Color Combo
    Dutch Dare Card Challenges - Christmas Card/Tag/Ornament
    Just Magnolia Challenge Blog - Anything goes with Sparkle
    Secret Crafter - Christmas
    Crafty Ann - Christmas 

    Thanks for visiting! Have a lovely week!

    Hugs, iulia

Your card looks like Christmas morning to me, or Christmas Eve with Tilda delivering her gift!! How smart of you to make the 3 D presents!!! Tilda is coloured beautifully :o) Love your papers and always love your hand made flowers! Your lace is lovely as well.
