Tilda at the door

What inspires you to make a card. For me, this time, it was a door die cut and some hinges I have had forever.
The door is done with Tim Holtz's wood impression and Cherry Lane's door die cut. It was done is a beige cardstock and then rubbed over with brown ink to show the wood effect. Acetate is over the window of the door. I had a hard time photographing it. The wreath is stamped in green from a red rubber designs image and has red stickles on it and a gold bow. The poinsettias are from a shapebilities die cut and the holly is a memory box die cut. The inside of the flowers are yellow rhinestones. The edges are embossed with gold. I thought there was just a touch of gold ink until I added the embossing powder and then I saw how for in the ink had actually gone. 
When you open the door that is on hinges you get to see all of Tilda.

Tilda is colored with copics. I drew in the floor. There are some stickles on Tilda's dress, candle and headband.
And now for the inside.

Hope you enjoy this Tilda.
