Christmas card - Tilda and Presents

Another post for the day. I was busy creating this weekend, so I wanted to share all the things I have been working on. Here is a Christmas card I made using Waiting Tilda and the wrapped Presents from Magnolia. She is so stinkin cute!!!
I use Copics to color her up.
Skin -E000, E00, R20
Hair - E51, E25, E29
Scarf, mittens, socks, bows - R29, R27, R24, E41
Hat, Sweater - E43, E42, E41, E40
Shoes - E44, E41, E40
Presents - R27, G24, G21, G20, E33, E35,
I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday Challenges for the layout of this card. I adjusted a few of the details, but the basic layout is the same. I used popdots to pop tilda up off the page, so it looked like she was sitting on top of the presents. The patterned paper is Graphic 45 - Christmas past Deluxe. I LOVE the colors and design of this paper collection, it is absolutely gorgeous!
I used my new Tim Holtz Sizzix die for the name plate for the sentiment. I cut it out in medium chipboard and then painted it with Tarnished Brass Crackle paint to give it an antique look. I love how it turned out. I then added some prima poinsettia flowers and an ornament felt charm for the finishing touches. I hope you like it.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
