Christmas Tilda

Okay, I've been naughty again! Today's card is not only my Colour Create DT card, but I'm also going to enter it into the Just Magnolia challenge. It seems an age since I coloured Tilda up and I really enjoyed making this card.
The Just Magnolia challenge theme is 'It's Christmas' and I wanted to turn Tilda with Rose into a Christmas card because I think she is versatile enough to take it.

The Colour Create Challenge is a gorgeous combination of PINK, BURGUNDY and IVORY and our optional extra is Roses. These have been picked by our mega talented Dena - thanks Dena, they were a joy to work with. Don't these colours suit Tilda so well! I hope this second photo shows the glittery glamour dust added to Tilda's dress (to turn it into her Christmas Party Dress) She has been coloured with Pro Markers and I distressed the edge with Tattered Rose distress ink.
The flowers and bling swirls are Prima. The patterned paper is Basic Grey 'Eva' and the pink paper has been run through the Cuttlebug 'Divine Swirls' embossing folder.
We're sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp! and she has given us a $25 credit voucher as a prize.
I hope you'll all find time to join in with the challenge over the Christmas holidays. Don't forget to take a peek at the fantastic creations that the design team have made with these colours.

Thanks for looking.
Sharon xx
