Tilda Present Christmas Card and two challenges

Good morning everyone, hope your weekend is going well. Our Saturday was a little wet but found plenty to do. Checked out a machine for the kitchen called Thermomix yesterday. Amazing what it does and my hubby and I had some wonderful created by this machine. But have decided that we will make do with the gadgets we already have. As the price tag is $1939. I was talking to a friend about this and she made a good point....if you were just starting out in a household the Thermomix would certainly be the way to go.

Best get on with this card before I lose my connection. Yes, not only is our computer slow but the internet connection didn't come on yesterday until the afternoon. The lights are starting to flicker on the modem now. Arrrrrgggghhh!!

My card I have used the sketch from Everything but the Kitchen Sink.....great sketch. I have also used the Pick Three Challenge which we had to choose from a list of punches.

A corner punch - I used
A punch with a holiday theme
A snowflake punch - I used
A border punch with a winter theme
A circle punch
Any punch with scalloped edges
A heart punch - I used

I used SU Perfect Plum for the base card. Then cut rectangles from Design Paper from SU which I think is called Good Morning Sunshine. Next added the punched snowflakes with glitter. I cut out the Tilda image with my circle nestabilities and embossed the edge. I coloured Tilda with my aqua pen and watercolour pencils and some metallic gold pen highlights. Added the three punched hearts to the bottom of her dress with a touch of glitter. Finished with the rub-on greeting and star form Kaisercraft.
