A "Tilda" Christmas

Good evening, Everyone!

I am slowly making Christmas cards. I am still sticking to my own challenge. :) Tonight, I decided to use this Tilda image Denise sent me a while ago. Who doesn't love Tilda, right? She's just the cutest darn thing! Hmmm...maybe I should get a couple of them. Maybe I'll get a few for my birthday. :) Gotta get myself a present, you know. lol I like to reward myself sometimes. hehe

What do you think of my card? I torn up the paper a little...okay, maybe a lot. lol I think this is the first time I torn up this much of the paper on a card. I must say, I am pretty pleased with it! Being a new cardmaker, I didn't really know how to distress. I mean, I never took any classes. Maybe I should check out some tutorials. I mainly learn from looking at all your work. I tell you, everyone of you give me so much inspiration! Anyway, I basically used a ruler and started tearing the paper. So fun! :)

Hmmm, let me see how many challenges I can fit my card into.....
1. Allsort: sketch plus torn edge.
2. Copic Creations: Red, pink, heart. I hope a little blue is okay.
3, Rubbernecker Stamps: Bling
4. C.R.A.F.T: Embossing

Card Details:

Stamp: Magnolia

Paper: DCWV, The Paper Company

Embellishment: Ribbon, gems

Ink: Copic, Memento, Color Box Cat's Eye, Sakura opal white pen

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Kim

I love what you have done with my sketch. Not many people decided to turn it around.

You clearly enjoy your tearing - and it shows. Well done.
