Tilda in Red

Die Cut Dreams challenge this week is "Tilda in Red".  So I was stumped......... I don't actually own any Tilda stamps; but luckily I knew a woman who did!!!  My great friend Anne over at Stamps & Paper has a some and she kindly stamped a couple of images for me so I could join in this challenge.

This image is Dinner Tilda and I have cut her out and coloured in ProMarkers.  On top of a square card base I have used some Christmas paper from a K&Co pack which I've had for ages.  The border has been punched with a Martha Stewart snowflake edge punch with a strip of matching paper from the same pack which I put through my Big Shot in an embossing folder.  I then added a strip of red lace.  I've used nesties ovals and added some red lace for Tilda to sit on - I used my bone folder to shape her and then used Pinflair Glue Gel.  The sentiment is computer generated and I used Stampin Up punches.  The holly berries and gold ribbon were snaffled from some Christmas crackers a few years ago - knew they'd come in handy for something!!!!  lol  As a finishing touch Tilda is wearing a necklace and bracelet of tiny gems and I've added red Stickles to the holly berries on the backing paper.

Thanks for popping over.
