I've used an older Tilda from the Little Christmas 2012 collection and her name is Little Tilda.  She is still as adorable as ever.   I have put a list of ingredients used below my post, but sadly they don't all have links to where I bought them as Inlinkz won't let me add them.  You may have to type the item in a search bar and look for it. 

Our sponsor is of course the very generous Magnolia Sweden who will be sending our random winner a lovely surprise package.

Magnolia-licious DT - Fancy Folds

A very good morning everyone,  I'm here today with my card for our new challenge over at 

Our theme is "FANCY FOLDS"  and I've made a double fronted 6x6 card using sweet Ski Star Tilda from the new Waiting for Christmas collection available for pre order over at 

I've also used the poinsettia and ornament Doohickey die from the Vol 2 Club kit. 

My papers are papermania basics and Tim Holtz vintage shabby chic 

I used a circular Whimsy sentiment and popped it onto a spellbinder small scallop nesti and then mounted that onto my memory box Astrid Circle die.  The washi tape is from My minds eye Vintage Christmas range. 

I think I've covered all the details of the card and I do hope you can find time to join us in our challenge.  I so look forward to seeing all your fabulous makes.  Our sponsor is of course the lovely Diana - owner of Magnolia-licious store and she will be sending our random winner a surprise package.

You could also be included in our draw for another surprise if you leave a comment on the main blog post or any of the DT's blogs. The more love you leave the bigger the chance of winning.

We have amazing prizes to be won from our very generous sponsors who are helping us celebrate in style, you can find out all about the prizes over on the main blog post,  the Design Team are also giving one of their followers the chance to win some lovely candy, all you need to do is join is complete the Blog Hop, join in the challenge and leave a comment on the DT's posts.  Easy peasy!!

Our theme for the next fortnight is 

"Special Celebrations"

This could be either Christmas, Halloween, New Baby, Anniversary, Wedding, etc.  If you decide to make a Birthday card then it should be for a special Birthday. i.e. 18th, 21st, 40th etc.

I've chosen a Christmas Theme and used this sweet Tilda from the Autumn Club Kit, isn't she cute in her little sleep suit and night cap!!!  I've also used the snowflake and berry stamp around the image. I've coloured her with copics and derwent soft pencils for the shading.

My first time using Mirror card, oh boy it doesn't like to be photographed, I took about 30/40 pictures before catching just a few without the flash glare.  I love the effect and will use it again but not for DT projects!! lol. 

My dies are the new Spellbinders Victorian Shapeability Victorian collection the large die at the back is called Victorian Medallion Three and the snow flake has been fussy cut from the smaller centre medallion. The inside is decorated with the same paper but I used spellbinders Fleur de lis square die.
