Tilda with Fir Tree

Well I have certainly got my creative mojo back. The ideas are swirling and seeing I am on holidays I have more time and energy to create. I have made another Tilda card and I am entering her into two challenges. The first is MDUC using a sketch and the other challenge is with Make It Colourful this is their very first challenge and I have chosen to use cool colours. I just got the Tilda with Fir (I ordered her with my Christmas money and thought that this challenge would be perfect for her. I adore snowflakes, snowmen anything to do with snow which is quite funny considering I have never been to the snow. Anyway I used two shades of blue cardstock from my scraps. I then embossed the bling bazzil with my snowflakes cuttlebug folder. I then cut my white piece of bazzill and used my trusty fiskars cutter with the oval template edge to make the scallops. I used a Carl snowflake punch to make three snow flakes and covered them in Kindy Glitz then added Kaiser Rhinestones. I don't know who made the paper doily and the swirly sentiment was a stamp from a Stamp-It christmas set. The ribbon was from my stash and of course I coloured her with Copics. Well here she is
I am really pleased how she turned out. I also discovered that my iphone takes fantastic photos of my card and the colouring looks more reaslistic than it does on my digital camera. Anyway here is the color list.
Fir Tree- G12, G24, B43
Hat & Coat- B21, B23, B24
Fur Trim- C1
Boots- C1, C5
Skin- E000, E00, E50
Hair-E41, E43
