Gingerbread Tilda - January 2018 Challenge At LHOSM

Hello, lovely blogger friend's.
Happy New Year!

It's time for our first challenge of 2018 over on the Lovely Haenglar or Sweet Magnolia blog
Our challenge theme is.....................ANYTHING GOES
Our wonderful sponsor is Wild Orchid Crafts

I'm sharing the Christmas card that I made last year for my Mum

I used Gingerbread Tilda from Magnolia Christmas party 2017 Collection.
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Bristol board extra smooth cardstock.
I coloured Tilda with Prismacolor, and polychromos pencils, and fussy cut around her!

For the shape of my card I used Gummiapan Old Paper die, and Maja Design "Home for the Holidays" papers.
Other dies used are; Cheery Lynn English tea party doily, Sizzix holiday greens, Gummiapan nesting stitched squares, and button heart. Bird houses, swirl, and garland from Doohickey club vol 17 Christmas/Winter 2017.

The sentiment holiday wishes kit is also from Christmas Party collection.
I used Gummiapan stitched square die, and stamped the holiday wishes kit onto the centre using Memento rich cocoa ink, and sprinkled around the inside with shabby white embossing enamel.
 I then matted it onto a larger stitched square with 2mm foam tape.
I decorated the top of the sentiment using the garland die from vol 17, and used the Gummiapan heart button die at the bottom, tied with a piece of red thread.

A close look at the flower arrangement.
The berries, wooden pine cones, and white paper flower/curls are from Swedish House Crafts.
The 35mm curly red rose, 30mm 2 tone brown rose, white flower spray, and 15mm olive green rose are all from my stash.
I placed the holly that I die cut from Sizzix holiday greens in between the arrangement.

A close look at Gingerbread Tilda.
I dotted Tilda's cheeks with a white gelly roll pen, and added glamour dust to the pom pom on her hat, and the heart inside the pocket.

Inside the card is decorated to complement the front.
