A Holiday Tilda

Happy Thursday!

Another Friday almost here! I had some free time today between loads of laundry so I did some crafting just for fun. Hope you have some time to do something for fun today too.

This card uses Sitting Tilda, but I made her work for a holiday themed card. I'm still working on finishing up my Christmas card list and this one will be added to the pile too.

I've used the sketch from Lili of the Valley with some BasicGrey Wassail papers in holiday reds and greens. I also distressed the edges of my papers for a vintage feel. I've embellished with organdy ribbon, hemp twine, beads and a charm and also some silver brads, red pearls, and Prima flowers which were sprayed with glimmer mist.

This card also fits the challenges at:
Everybody Art Challenge - red and green
Charisma Cardz: red, green, and white
Cute Card Thursday: Sew Beady
Magnolia Down Under: Bedazzled

Thanks for dropping by today. I'm off to do some Christmas shopping this afternoon and to get the kids some winter boots! Be sure to visit my Whimsy DT members to see who has today's Advent treat! Have a great afternoon. Happy stamping! :)
