Going Postal for Christmas at Totally Tilda

Hi Girls

Today I'm here with my second and last Guest Designer card for Totally Tilda..  it was really lovely to be asked to do a GDT spot..  and I must admit...  I've really enjoyed colouring some of these fab images..

Soo...  I chose Holly Tilda- as the theme is 'Going Postal for Christmas'... She's coloured with my copics as usual..  It seems a very 'green' card... but saved by her pink dress and bows thank goodness!  It's also a very 'busy' card for me... 

I did lots of distressing and added loads of glitter and stickles too...  well, if you can't have sparkle-ishousness at Christmas, when CAN you have it??  My postal bit is the stamp cut sentiment...

Materials Used:
  • Image - Tilda with Holly
  • Dies:  Nesties Oval, Nesties Labels 18, Whimsy Postage Stamp Die, Cottage Cutz Holly Bough
  • Sentiment: Whimsy Stamps Holiday Postage Stamps
  • Papers: Bits from stash, no names sorry
  • Gems and Glitter from stash

As this is my second and last GDT card, I'd like to thank the girls at Totally Tilda for inviting me to play..  I've had fun!  Why don't you pop over to the challenge blog HERE to see what the other lovely ladies have come up with??  You could win a fab prize if you enter too - the generous sponsor this time is The Ribbon Girl...  so what's stopping you??

Big hugs and Happy Sunday
