Gold and sparkly Tilda

Hello folks

The Magnolia challenge this week at the Ribbon Girl is to add sparkle and here is my card for the challenge -
Apologies for the photo quality. My daughter's little point and click camera really didn't like all the gold sparkles.
I began by embossing a piece of gold mirriboard with an Embossalicious snowflake embossing folder. I then cut a paper from Bobunny's Elf magic paper pad with a Tonic layering square die and matting it onto the embossed mirri. I cut more of the papers from the pad, matted them onto the embossed miiri and attached them to the stripey paper as shown. I then wrapped a piece of red ribbon (from my stash) around the card. I attached the whole thing to a 6 inch square card blank.
The image is Merry Christmas Tilda which I coloured with the following Promarkers -

  • skin - satin, blush, dusky pink and coral
  • hair - praline, saddle brown and burnt sienna
  • clothes - berry red, ruby, crimson, pine, holly, ivory and pastel beige
  • basket - tan, cinnamon and cocoa
  • flowers - ruby, crimson, apple cider, herb garden and gold
  • sky - pastel blue
  • ground - warm grey 1 and warm grey 4
I cut the image out using a Spellbinder's oval nestie, cut a faux nestie from embossed gold mirri and matted the image onto it. Then a cut a Spellbinder's floral oval from a paper from the pad and matted the image onto it. I added some gold glitter to the centre of the flower and then attached the image to the card with glue gel.

I made the poinsettia using plain white card, a double sided adhesive sheet, gold glitter and Spellbinder's poinsettia dies. I added a pearl to the centre of the flower which I coloured with a ruby Promarker. I then attached it to the card with glue gel.
The sentiment is from LOTV's Christmas wishes stamp set which I heat embossed with gold powder and cut out using Spellbinder's Resplendent rectangle.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -
