Hurrying Christmas Tilda

The other day on facebook I commented that I wanted to run away from home as I was feeling a bit overwhelmed with working 7 days a week. So to go along with my feeling I chose this Tilda but hopefully she isn't running away from Christmas. 


 
I colored Tilda with prisma colored pencils. Haven't done that in a while. I saw a youtube video on coloring with pencils so I decided to try some of the suggestions. Needs a bit more work around the face. Practice makes perfect and I need a bit more practice. Added a few red stickles on the dress and flower. Some star dust stickles are on the shoes. The poinsettias are from hero arts. Put some lace behind the layers. Pearls and nail head stickers are in the corners. I punched some tags out and wrote Merry Christmas on them.
 

 The patterned paper is from Penny Black.  On the inside I think I will write something like "Couldn't wait to wish you a Merry Christmas" of "Hurrying to wish you a Merry Christmas. 
Hope you enjoyed my Christmas card. I need to make lots more.

Peggie, Tilda could be coming 'home for the Holidays'...LOL. Whichever way she's going she's adorable and wonderfully coloured. Love the design on your DP. Tilda's shoes look like emerald shoes--like Dorothy's ruby shoes, you know?
Hugs,

She looks great, nice coloring with the pencils. Your card is very Xmas and looks like she is going to grandmas house instead to get away! A little R&R is great for the soul.
