Sparkle's Christmas Card Challenge - Tilda

Good afternoon!

I managed to get organized enough to post a card for Sparkle's Challenge this week! I haven't done a Tilda card in so long, and I had some fun with this one. I even got out the sewing machine!
I based this one on a card I saw on Claudia's blog, it's from the Friday Sketcher's blog. So, although I have never done any challenges except for Sparkle's Christmas Card Challenge, I have managed to post this card for two! Yay!
The patterned paper I used is My Mind's Eye - I just love this paper! I also used dotted swiss from Bo Bunny and two shades from CTMH - Barn Red & Garden Green. The sentiment is from CTMH's Holiday Hoopla - I love having some smaller sentiments for when you want to make the image more the focus. Some white flock on her hat & coat trim, some Kaiser craft rhinestones & a few snowflakes finished it off. I had some fun finishing the inside too.
Hope you are all having a great weekend! We had our photos taken at our favorite park this morning and the boys and are about to organize ourselves to sign & address at least some of our Christmas cards. I have yet to write the family Christmas letter and don't yet have the photos to go inside, but we can at least get them addressed & signed so that part is done. It is a big job, with any luck with can get half way through today. Hmm, that might be a little steep, let's go for 1/3.
Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Hi Bananastamper, I think I found your blog from Alanna's blog. I was intrigued so here I am checking out your blog. I jumped when I read that you are reading "The Drums of Autumn" By Diana Gabaldon. I just finished it and am into "The Fiery Cross". I love these stories. I enjoy time travel stories and she does a great job. Since I usually only read at night it takes me forever to get through these books. Diana takes chapters to get through a day.
    Have a great rest of the day.

  2. Adorable card! Perfect winter Tilda and wonderful DP choices; I especially like the row of snowmen on this fun sketch!!
