Dies to Die for and a little gift

Good morning All,  Well I must say I am in my glory when I'm making Christmas cards.  My favourite season,  I can bring out all the glitter, bling, puff paints and those fantastic Christmas Dies'

My main image is the sweet little gift Tilda from the new Christmas Dreams collection, coloured with Pro Markers and Derwent artist pencils. She has been placed on a round nesti and then onto a Marianne Designs scallop circle die.  I have listed all my die's and recipe details below this post.

I was enthused and motivated by quite a few challenges in the making of this card and without further ado the challenges I would like to enter my card into are:

Dutch Magnolia Lovers Challenge:  Gave me the lovely sketch to follow which also included you incorporating a Tag.

Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge:  They have 2 wonderful pictures to choose from. I chose the first which gave me my colour combo and the snow effect.

Just Magnolia Challenge:  Has the theme of Christmas is coming, and yes girls, it's just around the corner.

By the Cute and Girly Challenge:  This time round its all about Christmas Girls.

Really Reasonable Ribbon's Challenge:  This month is Christmas but do remember to include a ribbon in your creation.

The Ribbon Girls Challenge:  It's a Jingle all the way to Christmas challenge this fortnight.

Well my dears, that's all from me just now, wishing you all a lovely day ahead.
