Tilda with Fir Tree!

This poor little card has been sat on the shelf for ages, waiting to be finished. I made a bit of a mess of the snow and fur trims. They looked startling white and I was going for vintage look, so tried to give them an off white shade. It didn't come out very well, tried to correct it and the snowflakes just kept getting bigger and bigger. I think somebody is actually throwing snowballs at poor Tilda!!!

Anyway, wasn't going to post it, but decided it has a childlike rustic charm about it !!! LOL

The gorgeous paper is from DCWV Once Upon a Time Stack. Jute Ribbon and large Prima Flower  are from Bunny Zoe's. White Poinsettia's are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I've added Kars Brads as centres. Velvet ribbon from stash. Sorry I can't remember the colouring as I did the image ages ago!!!

Off to have my favourite Hawaiian Pizza for tea now and looking forward to Strictly Come Dancing at Wembley. Hope you all have a lovely evening!

Hi Sue, I love your Tilda with her snowballs, can I ask what you used for the snow? I always seem to have trouble creating snow! it may be that here in Aussie land the days at the moment are in the 40's , extremely hot , we don't have snow. Sorry I am rambling again. Love your card.
Hugs Cheryl

Hi Sue

I am so pleased you decided to post this little beauty.

I do have to be honest and confess though to struggling with the fact that Tilda doesn't have a smile (I always draw one on!! LOL!!)

I love all of the different elements you have used here .. so many lovely touches!

Stunning colouring too.

Hope you are having a good weekend.

Love Jules xx
