Friday Sketchers - Wrapped Tilda

Hello friends!
This weeks sketch over at the Friday Sketchers blog is hosted by Jeanette and she's given us a fab one to play with. My new Magnolia christmas stamps arrived today with my first sample of Magnolia paper. Oh my goodness, these papers are beyond gorgeous - I LOVE THEM!! Also, the challenge over at Color Create is to create a christmas card using RED, WHITE & GREEN, so I'm also submitting this card over on that challenge blog.
So, with new goodies in hand I got to work on this sweet christmas card using Wrapped Tilda. I coloured with my copics and whilst I'm quite happy with her bow, I'm not so much with her dress. I feel it's a little on the dark side but oh well, that's what happens when you don't have all the right shades of certain colours (my stock can only get built up slowly considering how expensive they are!!). I think I'll just say it's a velvet dress and velvet is very rich and lush, right?!!
I used the Fiskars Threading Water punch with the strip of lace over the top. The flowers were all glimmer sprayed and glamour dusted. I used the MS branch punch and a pearl pin (received in a candy win from Bev). The green panel behind Tilda is a nesties label 8. And that's it!
I'm teaching a Tilda card over at Heather's this morning so I'm looking forward to playing with the ladies! Thanks for coming by and visiting me and I hope you're all enjoying a beautiful Saturday!

Be still my heart...New Christmas Tildas! Wow! this is so adorable. I love how you did colour with the copics...and before you mentioned it in your post...I thought Tildas dress looked like velvet! I love the paper. Darn..I wish I had ordered that delicious paper! I love the pin and the layout! Your class will be so lucky to spend a morning with you and Tilda!

I think her dress is perfect! A dark green velvet dress would look just like that and I think it is perfect. Love the pearls and paper too! Best, Curt
