Sneaky Tilda + Challenges

Good Morning my Dears, I hope you are all having a wonderful week so far.  I made this card for a few challenges and used some of my new stash that I bought at the SECC craft show in Glasgow.

I won the lovely sneaky Tilda from Stamping Scrapping when I was given a choice of stamps after winning the Magnolia Stamp Lovers Halloween challenge.  Isn't she the cutest little madam. I've coloured her with ProMarkers and mounted her onto an oval nestie. I paper pieced the little gift behind her back and glittered the bow. 

I cut out two of my new Tim Holtz on the edge die (scrollwork) and distressed it with his broken china distress ink. The little pale blue Christmas ribbon from Anit'a covers the join really well.

I had some A4 sheets of foam which I got from poundland, I've used the silver one to cut out my snowflakes and the little diamond shapes are the inserts that fall out from the snowflake when you remove it from the die.  I've used stickles all around the edge of the card, the brad snowflakes have had zig glue applied to them and then glittered with white. The flower is from Wild Orchid Crafts.

My top tip for Top Tip Tuesday. is to look at the shapes you're cutting from your dies and check that the inserts can't be used somewhere on your card.

I haven't used a sentiment on the outside of the card because the ribbon has Merry Christmas scrolled accross it.  I will add my sentiment to the inside when I decide who is receiving it.

Thank you so much for visiting I hope you like my Sneaky Tilda and do come back and visit soon.
