Tilda with Candy Cone

Hello everyone,
I hope you're all having a great day. All of this Christmas crafting has put me in such a good mood! I've made a card using my favourite Christmas colour scheme for the LLC challenge and it was a hard decision because I love frosty pastels and natural tones, but I really can't resist the traditional red and green with a touch of Kraft! Tilda with Candy Cone has been coloured with Inktense pencils and the Maja Design (It's Christmas Time) papers have been hand-stitched. I have also used:
Tag, letters - from the same Maja Design collection as the papers
Lace, rusty snowflake (with added paint), pin, spool, shabby bark heart (with added Frantage because I'm addicted to this and can't stop adding it to everything!) - Live and Love Crafts
Leaves (with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and gesso), white flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
Red flowers, ribbon, twine, cheesecloth - Ribbon Girl
Pearls - Samuel Taylors
Bottle and beads - from my stash

The pull-out tag:

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Live and Love Crafts - Favourite Christmas Colour Combo
Ribbon Girl - Christmas
Totally Tilda - Christmas Tilda wearing red
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes

Thank you for stopping by and leaving such lovely comments! x
