It' a Pink Christmas!

I would firstly like to say, that having just been away for a week, I would like to apologise to everyone for not getting around to you to comment. I follow a very large number of sites and no matter how I hard I try fail miserably to comment on everyones fabulous creations.
Anyhow, I fancied making a Tilda card and here she is. I didn't miss card making as much as I expected to - I obviously needed a break!!!! I did however, miss looking at peoples blogs and checking out what everyone else was up to.

Here is the sketch I used from The Sweet Shop, here....

and here is a closeup.....

I thought a pink Christmas card would make a nice change - and Tilda suits pink nicely!!!!

(Edited to say I have just had the eyes pointed out to me - it was embossed in black which is why her eye is shining - the evil eye maybe!!)

I am entering this card in the following challenges:-

Alphabet Challenge - Scallops,

Die Cut Dreams Christmas Club - Tilda in Pink,

Just Magnolia - Anything Goes,

Pile It On - Layers,

One Stop Craft Challenge - Inspirational photo (I chose pink and orange),

Pollycraft Monday Challenge - Christmas but no green or red,

Simon Says Challenge - Lace and pearls,

Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Distress It!, and

Stamp Something - Cute

Hope you like it - please let me know what you think.

Beautiful card, even if the sparkle in the eye looks quite strange in the first picture...

A wonderful card...Love the pink christmas theme and Tilda is adorable..I sympathise with you about the commenting,how ever much I try I can't seem to get round to everyone and still do my DT commenting...I think we put an awful lot of pressure on our selves, it's meant to be a fun thing...I'm always thankful for comments but understand it takes time to go round everyone...
