A Pink Christmas with Sweet Tilda + Challenges

Good Morning Dears,  Well thank goodness it's Monday!!  what a busy weekend I've had.  I was working Fri Sat & Sun so my weekend begins today and I intend to have a very lazy day.  No housework or cooking for me.  I'm spending the day in my craft room with the door firmly closed!!!

I've been working on this card over the weekend when I've had a few spare minutes and finally finished it this morning.  There are lots of challenges that helped me in it's creation which I will list below.

I've used Tilda from last years collection and coloured her with Promarkers and sprinkled a little glamour dust around her. The papers are from papermania 6x6 Festive Frolics and they are adorable. The large flower is one of the new mulberry hellebores from Wild Orchid Crafts and they are utterly gorgeous.

The full recipe for my card is at the bottom of this post.

I hope you all have a wonderful day, I may be back a little later with another card or two/three/four lol, depending on how or if my creative juices are quick or slow.

I'll say Bye for now.  Suzi xox

Challenges that inspired me :
