Holy Tilda

Hi Everyone,
Hope you are all well and happy, I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the lovely comments you all made on my DT position, I appreciate each & every one.
Today I would like to share a card that my daughter requested for one of her favourite teachers for Christmas. Brittney (my daughter ) asked if it could be a little old fashioned and the first thing I thought of was maggies! 
I chose the lovely Holy Tilda from the new Sweet Christmas Dreams collection, she is such a cutie and I do love the hair do. I teamed her with Bo Bunny Father Christmas papers which are stunning IRL. The flowers are from WOC as are the gold corners, the border die is also from Magnolia and the ribbons are from my stash.
Here's a close up of Tilda that I coloured with Copic Markers and Prisma Pencils ( I will put the list at end of post ) I sponged around tilda with Antique Linen Distress Ink  for more of an aged look. I also used a gold gel pen for the dots and vine around the Holy , sorry you can't see it in the photo.
I decided to put the sentiment ( computer generated ) on the inside front and leave the other side so Brittney could write her own words.
Brittney has also asked for another Christmas card for a different teacher and the theme of this one is Bling so stay tuned I may be back soon to show you that one he he he ....
