Deck the halls with bough of holly...

Fa la la la la, la la la la!

My unwrapped Tilda is finally getting some action, I have had her coloured for a while and i finally got around to creating something with her, and yes, it is another easel card. I LOVE easel cards, they are so much fun to make and it so much more impressive than a normal card. This actually did not begin life as an easel card, but evolved when I decided something was missing :)
The papers and ticket are from Bizzy Bec's digi store (again, I love this stuff)
I'm thinking of now giving this card to my mum, but if I make another card then I might change my mind again, lol, I'm hopeless. I wish you all could see this card in real life, the pictures just do not do it justice.

Here is the top of the card:
A shot of the full card:
A side view, you can see where I have raised things with foam adhesive:

This card plays along with:
Mojo Monday - Sketch
Creative Card Crew - Gold or Silver (I used a silver charm and brad)
Cupcake Craft Challenges - Sing a Christmas carol
Just Magnolia - It's Christmas
Cooking it up with Katie - Recipe - A christmas theme, ribbon, a current sketch
...and did anyone notice, no glitter! It took a lot of restraint but held off on the glitter this time, but i have been working on a few other things that more than make up for it :)

On rare occasions it is better not to glitter, lol. You know, you say this is better in real life, so there is only one way for me to know for sure...... Do you need my address??? I love it, she is coloured wonderfully and I love how you've left some open green cardstock on the top of this beauty!!
Take Care,
Stephanne
