Winter wishes

Hello everyone and a very happy Saturday to you all

Today I am going to be dashing around the shops trying to buy my last minute gifts. Yes I know earlier in the week I said Id finished but I've realised there are some missing so it's off to do battle with the Christmas crowds this morning. Hopefully the weather will be kind so I complete my shopping without getting wet.
Today's card features a new Tilda stamp which is so lovely to colour. It is nice to get my pens out again and do some colouring at last.
Isn't she gorgeous. I love colouring Tilda images.
I began by covering a 6 inch square card blank with a paper from my stash (sorry had it for ages so have no idea who made it). I then cut a square of paper from Bobunny's Elf magic paper pad and matted it onto a piece of white centura pearl. I added a piece of lace and blue velvet ribbon (both from the Ribbon Girl) to the centre and attached it to the card base.
The image is It's cold outside Tilda. I dusted off my Spectrum Noirs (pens and pencils) and set to work colouring her - 
  • skin - FS3, FS4, FS6, CR1 and 004
  • hat and coat - BT2, BT3, BT4, BT6, 052, IG1, IG3 and 117
  • hair - GB8, GB10 and EB7
  • holly - DG2, DG4 and DR1
  • sky - IB1
  • snow - IG1
I cut the image out with a Spellbinder's oval nestie, inked whilst still in the die with tumbled glass distress ink and matted onto a Spellbinder's Floral oval. I added lots of glitter before attaching it to the card base with Pinflair.
I cut 3 Spellbinder's snowflakes, attached them to the card with Pinflair and added turquoise pearls to the centre of each one.
To finish I added a sentiment from LOTV's Christmas wishes sentiment set, cut it out with Spellbinder's Resplendent rectangles and inked whilst still in the die with tumbled glass distress ink. I then attached the sentiment with Pinflair.

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