Sneaky Tilda

Well I did it, I created my very first Magnolia Christmas card.  After hopping around a few blogs I felt inspired to create a Christmas Card.  I used Sneaky Tilda from the new Magnolia Christmas Collection, I picked her up from Diana over at Magnolia-licious.  I see Sneaky Tilda is currently out of stock and on re-order.

Tilda is popped up on top of torn Mulberry Paper layers. 

A close up of Sneaky Tilda.  

I think Tilda is sneaking out to the Christmas Tree to put her present under the tree....maybe a surprise for mom.

Papers are from my stash and the Poinsettia flowers are from Prima.  I attached the Poinsettia's to the card with brads,  then I put a dollop of glue on the centers of the brads and covered them with Gold micro beads.  Sneaky Tilda is colored with Copics, sorry I forgot to write the colors down.  I trimmed her outfit in Frosted Lace Stickles and a yellow/gold glitter glue on the gift bow.  Tilda is stamped on Cryogen paper with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. 

I entered my card in the following Challenges:
Wild Orchid Challenges - Classic Christmas
Stampavie and More - Christmas
Sir Stampalot - Christmas Traditions

I am very pleased how my card turned out....simple yet elegant.  Thanks for stopping by!
