Christmas card overload!

LOL This happens to me every year so you'd think I'd have learnt by now! We sat to write out our Christmas cards and there was I thinking we were going to have some left over, but no, seven short - seven!!!! Argh!!! so I had to go into cardmaking overdrive and luckilly managed to get six done over two evenings so only one more left to do and luckilly it doesn't need to be posted! This is one of the six, using a gorgeous Tilda which luckilly I'd already coloured when having a play with my Prismacolour pencils! The papers are by Magnolia too - no sewing though - I was up against the clock and didn't have time!

So, like I already said, Tilda has been coloured with Prismacolour pencils, blended with sansador and I've added stickles to her wings, halo and star. I also added some dots to her cheeks with a white gel pen.

The poinsettia is from my stash and the leaves were cut with a sizzix die from greaseproof paper, left over from one of my Tim's 12 tags. The pearl sprays were cut from an old Christmas garland.The white flower is by Prima and the brad is from The Hobby House. I also added a scrap of cheesecloth and some gold braid that I teased out to look a bit like tinsel.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x
