Tilda's Warm Winter Wishes

Boy, 2011 sure hasn't started off on the right track for me so far!  I swore I would become more organized this year and my camera charger has already disappeared into thin air!  It's bad enough that over the summer my really nice camera got a crack in the screen leaving me with just my one camera - but of course it's a camera that doesn't take batteries - it needs to be charged!  These were the last photos that I had taken with it before it died on me and they are of a card I made with a couple of challenges in mind.  I followed the recipe asked for by Magnolia-licious Highlites (4 Flowers, 3 DP, 2 Magnolia images, and 1 ribbon) as well as the sketch for Friday Sketchers and I really love how it turned out.  I hope it was all right that I included my second image on the inside of my card - I just don't think I could have fit anything else on the card front!  The papers I used were all from the same collection by the Paper Studio from last year and I love how the hues of blue and whites coordinate together!  My image is Tilda with Fir from the Merry Little Christmas Collection.  I colored her with my copics and added distress stickles to her hat trim and coat trim.  I then distressed the edges with Tim Holtz stormy sky distress ink - I love this color!  I added a satin ribbon/bow to the front and then added my flowers.  I glimmer misted three of them in Frost Glimmer mist to match the paper and one in Pearl to give them some sparkle.  I added bling to the middle of the flowers and for the white one I colored the pearl with one of my coordinating copics.  The sentiment is by Whimsy Stamps.

Here's another angle:

For the inside, I added the designer paper that you see the least of from the front to tie it all together.  I then added a big snowflake ornament to the one side and left space for my note on the other.  The Tilda that I used here was sent to me by a friend and I just love her.  She's a special limited edition and I'm unsure of her name, but she's a cutie.  I colored her up in matching colors and added diamond stickles to her hat and scarf.  I think she looks so cute sitting there hanging off the paper!

Sorry these turned out so dark!

And one last sideways shot, full of layers and dimension!
