Christmas Tilda

Have you ever just wanted to mail your Christmas card off in a business envelope.  I made this card with just that in mind!  Tilda is sitting anxiously awaiting Christmas to arrive as she is perched on a line of snowflakes.  I love the new paper from PTI that I used for her background circle as well as some of their older paper for the base of the card.  I used my Nestability circle to cut and emboss a circle then got out my snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folder for and embossed same circle.  Added one of my favorite Christmas sentiments and my card was done.  Of couse I used different techniques with my Copic markers for my image.  I wish now I had colored some pants or tights on the poor little things legs, don';t you?  Love, Elle
Here is a closeup of Tilda:
