Baby's 1st Christmas + challenges

Hello my Dears,  My great great niece ( makes me sound like Methusala) will be celebrating her very first Christmas this year so I've made her a very special card to celebrate. 

I've used sweet baby Tilda and coloured her with Promarkers and water colour pencils and added just a touch of glitter to the edges of her wings.

The papers are from papermania basics and the adorable embroidered ribbon is from  I made the little heart from thick white card and covered it in the same paper as the background.  added a little silver bow and tiny feet charm.  The flowers and pearl stamens are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The rest of my recipe is below this post.

There are a few challenges that helped in the construction and I am entering my into the following.

1. Sir Stampalot Challenge: This month are looking for Christmas Traditions, I think Christmas is all about children so that's my take on the theme. 

2. Winter Wonderland Challenge:  Are looking for a Christsmas Carol this week.  I think Silent Night could be appropriate for this, I'm sure my niece will approve.

3. Creative Craft Challenge: Are looking for us to Celebrate with them this week as it's their 1st Blogaversary, Happy Anniversary girls. Hope you have many more.

4, Pear Tree Designs Challenge:  Have a lovely sketch to follow this week.

5. Magnolia Down Under Challenge:  Would like you to make your own embellishments this week. I made the little heart.

6. Allsorts Challenge:  The theme this week is Twas the night before Christmas from the poem.  I've used the line where all the children are asleep tucked up in their beds.

Thank you so much for popping in to visit, I hope you enjoyed your stay and that you'll come back to see me again soon.
