Hi everyone, hope you’ve all had a good weekend! A card today using the holly letter stamp and the sweet Wrapped Tilda stamp, I think she’s gorgeous and very sweet so I’m entering the card into the Roses on Paper Challenge where this week the challenge is ‘romance or sweet’.

Tilda has been masked so that I could have her sitting on the envelope and then water coloured with distress inks with added copic spica pen and stickles. The white background card has been embossed with the CB snowflakes embossing folder and is then mounted on pink core’dinations card. Going along with the wrapped theme I've made this fold up style card so that Tilda is hidden inside, I think this allows me to enter the ABC challenge this week where the theme is ‘hidden’.

I cut some kraft cardstock 12inches by 8 inches, scored on the long side at 4 inches and 8 inches and on the short side at 4 inches and cut off the two outside 4 inch squares leaving the square in the middle at the bottom, I also cut the two wrapover pieces into points to give the envelope look. There are stamped snowflakes all over the kraft card in white ink inside and out and I’ve also done faux stitching along all the edges with a pink sparkle pen. Added more pink and white card to the bottom panel and a few snowflakes around the edges in antique linen distress ink. To tie up the card I placed the ribbon behind the pink panel on the base of the card, punched a hole through the two out side flaps and threaded the ribbon through the hole plus a punched snowflake. I added some clear gems to the stamped snowflakes to add some more sparkle. Well I hope to get round some blogs to comment during the week, haven’t had much time over the last week or so and I need to catch up. As always, thank you for all the lovely comments you leave, I always appreciate them so much. TFL.

Hi! I just loves the way you paint. Can you please tell how you do backgrounds with those spots...can see that you have done the same on her scarfs. What sponge and brushes are you using...please make a tutorial ;-)

Wow Chris, this is a stunner! I love how the card opens, what a fantastic idea. And your colouring is wonderful as always.

Can I ask, if you have a mo, to let me know how to edit the menu bar just under your blog header. I'm also using a Simply Fabulous blogger template and for the life of me I can't work out how to customise this!
