Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop

It's time for the monthly magnolia-licious Christmas blog hop.If you have come from Marcia's blog you are on the right path. If you have happened here please go to here to find the beginning so you won't miss any of these great cards.  I love Christmas and Christmas cards unfortunately it is so hard to get all my Christmas cards done when things get so busy so it's great to do some now.  Diana at Magnolia-licious here gave out this great stamp for a gift if you purchased so much. It is out of stock now but my understanding is that it will be in this year's Christmas collection. Here is my card using Tilda with a violin.
Isn't she just adorable.  Tilda is colored with copics. The die is a fleur-de-lis shapeabilities. I had the worse time trying to get a good cut with it. I don't know if it was just my die or if I needed another layer or what but I had to take an xacto knife and cut out some of the shapes. I glued the shapes from the gold fleur-de-lis onto the white one. I stamped Tilda on the white and then stippled around the shape with the Aspen Mist and Pretty Petunia Versa Magic Chalk ink. Actually I used a stencil brush because the cats carried away my stipple brush and haven't returned it.  Then I colored and cut out another Tilda and popped her up on foam tape. I put white ink all over her dress and the some stickles over the ink. The wings have stickles on them also. Tilda's shoes and violin have diamond glaze on them. The poinsettia is from hero arts. I'm not sure where the green leaves underneath are from. The edges are all distressed and the green is sewn down. The ribbon is some silk ribbon and there is a gold dew drop and a cherry dew drop in the corner.
Copics used:

Dress: G07, YG03, G00, G28, YG06, 0
