Halo Tilda

It's time for a new challenge at Bizzy Bec's and this month it is Bec's chose the theme 'Christmas'.  How fitting is that?  Most of us are doing or have finished our Christmas cards so it should be an easy challenge to enter.  Be sure to head on over to the Challenge Blog to see what the DT gals have created for your inspiration.  For today's card I used Memory Box paper and the image is Halo Tilda and coloured with Copics.  The sentiment is from Whimsy's Mini Letter Seals and the Poinsettia is Poppystamps Blooming Poinsettia.  I've added the pearly dots with Viva's Pearl Pen and added Stickles Dry Fine Glitter to the wings and star.  Another one of my sad stories... why do our mess-ups always, always happen at the very end of the project?  Must be Murphy's Law or something.  Anyway, I laid this little gal face down to add a runner of glue to the back and when I picked her up... OH NO... the dreaded smudge!  I must have had some ink on my fingers or mat because it's now on her face and it wasn't about to come off!  Oh well... guess I created another opportunity!  Not sure what for, but an opportunity nontheless!

I love this card- beautifully colored and embellished beautifully. I love to see cards that you know will fit into an envelope that have all of the WOW factor as the ones that have to be hand delivered cause of all of the flowers and embellies!
