Challenge #6 at Cooking It Up! - New Christmas Tilda

Happy Turkey Day!
I don't know if you'll read this today or tomorrow but I wish you and yours all the best and hug them and be Thankful for what you have as you never know when it will change.
It's time for another challenge at my Cooking It Up With Katie blog!
This weeks recipe is a simple one;

Use a brad
Use something in 3's (as in 3 flowers, 3 ribbons, 3 words etc)
Use Red

See I told you it was easy!
Obviously I don't do cards with just one challenge so here are a few more this works for:

Sketch and Stash gave me the sketch
Paper Play want you to "Read All About It" and use paper with text
Pile It On wants to see Rub On's
Opus Gluei had a theme of Sweetie Pie
Paper Maniac wants you to "Use Those Flowers"
Magnolia Down Under wants a Christmas Card
Whimsy Stamps also want a Christmas Card
Creative Friday had a recipe of (if my German serves me correct!) 2 different papers, 3 flowers, 1 embellishment, ribbon and the color Red
Everybody Art had a Christmas Theme

I am super excited to use one of the brand new Holiday Tilda stamps by Magnolia. I ordered 5 from the new collection and for this card I chose Christmas Party Tilda and I think if she was colored in different colors she'd work for birthdays too so she's a great buy!
I stamped her twice and colored her with Copic's. Then I cut one out and popped her on top for extra dimension.
The dp are from the Jolly Holiday paper stack from Hobby Lobby.
The flowers are from Brides and the spotted brads are The Paper Studio.
I don't remember where the Happy Holidays rub on came from I'm afraid.
The border punch is the Deco Fan from Martha Stewart and the Holly ribbon is from Michaels.

Inside is more of the Happy Holidays dp and a ribbon topped message mat.

I hope you can the see the depth on Tilda now she's popped up :)

I hope you like this one and I'd love to see you join in at my Cooking It Up With Katie Challenge!
