Tilda is having a devilish time this Christmas!!

Hello blogger buddies.
I hope you all have managed to get some crafty time
in this week, as it is wrapping up quickly!!
I've put together this Christmas card for a friend
with a couple of ideas in mind.

Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential
has asked us to make a project with words
as the focal point, to show how they enhance a project.
My creation didn't end up centered around words,
but without them, the card makes no sense.
Santa's list shows where I was coming from in selecting
the gorgeous Devil Tilda to adorn this card.
Clearly, her name belongs on the Naughty side of the list.
Roses on Paper set a Christmas card challenge,
I've incorporated the current Midnight Madness sketch,
it's a rather loose interpretation but I really wanted to play
and envisioned my scoll coming out a little more wavy, but...
I've turned the sketch on its side, go see it,
you will love its potential with that
layer of ruffly goodness to use,
I want to try another card with that sketch, it's a goodie.

I've used Devil Tilda,
she's been coloured in watercolour pencils,
her wings were doused in Stickles.
I made a little scroll/list thing
and distressed it in brushed corduroy,
the cardstock is Bazzill and the DP is Basic Grey.
The present is a Penny Black image that I
stole the present off of and gave it to Tilda,
things aren't looking good for her this year,
as she is acting a bit devilish, so I thought
I would give her a little something for her troubles...
Gorgeous Mina flower there, I am almost out: TRAGEDY!!!
The little roses are Prima and I've used an
EK Success fern punch for the branches,
everything amounst the bloomage got layered with Stickles.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend!!

Stephanne-this is sure a way to stretch your stamping budget by using stamps designated for one Holiday for another...LOL We had a challenge on SCS for Virtual Stamp night to do just this and there were some terrific card reminds me of that. I think this is just too cute!!! It brings a smile to my face and a chuckle in my heart. Just beautiful. Thanks for playing along with us at Midnight Madness. We appreciate your support.
