Friday Sketcher's challenge

There is another gorgeous sketch at Friday Sketchers challenge. Thank goodness for all these sketches, I've made so many cards in the last week my head is spinning and I couldn't possibly think of a layout myself right now LOL! I feel like a card factory, I'm sure you all probably feel the same! The papers are from Magnolia and I have distressed the edges with tearing, brushed cordoruy distress ink and stickles. The card is much paler in real life than is showing in the photo, it is not really such a bright green as it looks here, the colour in the left hand corner is how it should look!
Tilda and Edwin have been colourd with distress inks and I have added ivory flower soft to her coat trim. I have stamped a Christmas swirl from Whiff of Joy around them with antique linen distress ink and then traced the swirls with stickles.
I have layered some white tulle ribbon over the music paper and tied in a bow. The blossom flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts, sprayed with glimmer mist. I have also added some punched leaves using a Woodware punch from white glittered paper and some branches from the base cardstock using MS branch punch.
This card was commissioned so needed to fit in the requested sentiment somewhere so make two little tags fixed to the corner of the image with a brad from the Hobby House.
I coloured the image again and cut it out to decorate the inside where I have written "at Christmas and always" in gold gel pen. Again I have stamped a swirl from the Whiff of Joy Christmas swirls set.
Hope you like it and thanks for looking! x
