A Christmas card for TOMIC

Today I have another card to share using the gorgeous stamps from the Magnolia winter kit - I love this kit so much! I am entering my card into the TOMIC challenge as this week they would like to see sitting characters and doohickey dies - perfect for my Sweet Christmas Tilda sitting on Santa's hat! The papers I've used are all by Magnolia too, distressed with walnut stain distress ink and stickles.

I masked the two images together and have coloured them with copics. I added stickles to the trim on the hat and Tilda's top.

I have used three doohickey dies on my card: the tag, lace die and heart swirl. The sentiment is from the winter kit too. The ribbon is from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop and the roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The poinsettia is from my stash and I added a tiny bell from Papermania in the centre.

I have been admiring everyone's cards with the gorgeous swathes of cheesecloth for some time now and finally managed to get myself some! I have added a few dabs of acrylic paint to it and the edges of the papers here and there. The heart pins are from my stash.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x
