Reindeer Tilda

Hi Everyone,
I have another Christmas card to show you today, and it's not traditional at all! I started off with a vintage feel ,but then added a tiny bit of sparkle with my ribbon and a little silver reindeer charm. So still not sure about this one but here she is....
Reindeer Tilda is from the Merry Little Christmas Collection from Magnolia and I purchased her at Bizzy Bec's Online Store I have coloured her with copic markers and prisma pencils, I didn't have any background image for Tilda to sit on so I had to make up my own, I think it looks like a step that she is sitting on now. I have done a bit of shading around tilda with pencils only , I was trying to get the effect that she was in a room, need more practice with this lol, this room is pretty bare lol. The DP is Kaisercraft Tea at Elsie's pad
The embossing folder is cuttlebug . The border punch and branch are from MS , the gorgeous flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the reindeer charm is from Bunny Zoe's Craft, where the challenge this month is Anything Christmas with pearls     and I have used a couple of pearls to match my colourings.I have used a lot of Distress Ink on this card in Walnut Stain and Weathered Wood I really love the blue in the weathered wood . Tilda is cut out with nesties along with the sentiment tag, and the ribbon is from my stash.
Here's a close up of Tilda, I actually coloured her then found the blue a little too bright so I went over the top with N2 copic to tone it down a bit and found that this technique works really well. I have seen other people do it but this was the first time I had tried it myself. Sorry I am rambling on a bit lol.
