Tilda The Basket Case! :O))

Evening Peeps,

Another Christmas Card....yes, I really am cracking on with them now LOL

I used a gorgeous little Tilda stamp that my lovely friend Andrea bought me for Christmas...I know it isn't Christmas yet, but she let me open my pressie early...bless her..and thank you Andrea, I loooove this stamp :O))

I stamped Tilda with black StaZon and then coloured her in with Derwent Aquatone Watercolour pencils. I chose the pink and lime green colour theme to match with some gorgeous papers I have..and, yes, yet again, I cut off the bottom strip before remembering to write down who it was made by! I have a vague recollection that it is SandyLion...but don't quote me!!

Once Tilda was coloured in, I used my Cuttlebug and Nestabilities to make a little oval mat for her to stand on. I used some pinky paper and some lime green Bazzill for this. I then cut some fancy paper and made some mats for the rest of the card...added a little greeting which is by Inkadinkado and used the 'Bug again to cut a couple of snowflakes using glittery cardstock.

To finish the card I used lime green Stickles to add a little sparkle.

Thanks for looking - and also, thanks for the lovely comments earlier in the week which gave me the confidence to use a completely unusual colour theme for a Christmas Card :O))

PS.....I keep meaning to say.....can any of you see the snow on my Blog? If you look carefully, you will see that there are little snowflakes falling over the photo's....but cos my background is cream, they don't show up too well....ah well, it is a little festive I guess LOL
