Tilda Christmas

Well, its 1.43am and I've finally found time to share my latest card with you. I made it last night to enter into a couple of challenges. I hadn't really intended to make many cards for challenges for a while and instead concentrate on making Christmas presents but I was able to tie the challenges in to a Christmas card and I still need to make a few of those anyway.
So, on to the card -

This weeks theme on Passion for Promarkers is "Colours of Old Photographs" and over on Top Tip Tuesday the challenge is to use an image so I set to work colouring this gorgeous Magnolia Tilda image in shades of brown.

I cut around the image to form a tag and added a lovely snowflake eyelet to tie in with the lovely snowflake paper I used. I coloured the tag using a drop of strong coffee.

I created this flower using a couple of flowers I was sent. I used my embossing tool to add a bit of extra shape, coloured them with chalk and finished with a snowflake brad.

I finished the card by adding a strip of ribbon, tying a bow in the middle and hanging a bauble die cut from it and adding a peel off sentiment.
Thanks for looking.
