Tilda on Christmas Ornament - an Easel Card

Hello friends!
This is the last card in my 'trio' of cards for the class I'm teaching at Heather's Stamping Haven on December 12th. It is an easel card and I'm so happy with the way this turned out. I've used the new Wrapped Tilda christmas image and coloured her with copics and Twinkling H20's. The ornament is trimmed and then spritzed with gold glimmer mist. I added some wire for the ornament handle.
I've used shimmer paper in gold and pale lilac to balance the colours I coloured Tilda with. The panel behind Tilda is embossed with a new cuttlebug christmas folder which is absolutely divine (and it's a large one too)!! I added a cream organza bow to the ornament and 4 pearl brads in each corner.
The bottom panel I used the same colour shimmer cardstock but just in reverse. The sentiment (The Stamp Barn) - which reads 'Sending Christmas Blessings to you' is on a nesties label. A pearl at the top and bottom finish that off and give the appropriate 'stop' for the easel.
This was a wonderfully quick and easy card and looks so much nicer in real life - the shimmer and sparkle really don't show that well on the pictures.

Thank you all for stopping by! And remember, if you're in the Ottawa region and want to take this class, please pop on over to Heather's and sign up - I'd love to have you there!
Your visit is so much appreciated and I hope I can get a bit of blogging time in tomorrow to check out all your gorgeous creations! My boys have a PD Day from school so not sure what kind of a day we have planned yet.
I hope you all have a wonderful evening/day whatever you're doing!
