First Tilda Christmas Card

I have finally started on my Christmas cards for this year! I LOVE the new Magnolia stamps for Merry Christmas collection 2010. If you have not seen them, you should definitely check them out. I pretty much want all of them!!!!
However, for this card, I used Unwrapped Tilda, which is one of my faves. She is so versatile, you do not have to just use her for Christmas. She is beautiful for Birthday cards too, and really any occasion when gifts are involved!
Ok, now I am just rambling. On to the card....
I used the Graphic 45 Christmas Past Deluxe paper line for this card. I love the traditional Red and Green for Christmas papers, and Graphic 45 is my absolute FAVE, so I could not resist using it in this card. I stuck with the traditional red and green colors for the challenge over at Totally Tilda. I used a manilla colored cardstock as my matting, and love how it complimented the patterned paper.
I used a sketch from Just Magnolia for their challenge this week, and just love this sketch. It is easy to incorporate this sketch into many different styles of cards. Thanks so much for a great challenge. I added some Faux stitching with a stamp I have from Crafty Secrets. I do not have a sewing machine, nor do I trust myself anywhere near sharp needles, so I have to fake it! LOL I stamped the stitching in Forest Green distress ink to match the patterned papers. This stitching falls into the challenge at Pixie Cottage for this week, which is stitching.
I used the following copics on Unwrapped Tilda:
hair - C9, C7, C5, C3, 0
Skin - E000, E00, R20
Dress, Socks, and hairbow - R29, R27, 24
Present - G24, G22, E33, E51
I am entering this card into the following challenges. Go check them out and play along!
