Pile It On - Flowers and Flourishes

Happy Sunday!
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and if you went shopping on Black Friday that you got what you wanted :)
This weeks challenge at Pile It On is to include both Flowers and Flourishes in your project.

The other challenges that fit this are:
ResQ Challenge wanted you to use felt
Creative Inspirations was where I chose the sketch from.
A Spoon Full of Sugar had a color combo of Brown with either Blue or Pink
My Time To Craft had a theme of "Very Vintage"
Created By Hand had a theme of "I'm Blue"
Etsy Inspired had a wonderful inspiration store and I chose this gorgeous scarf from the Barefoot Weaver store
Crafty Creations had a Christmas theme
Lil Red Wagon wanted Buttons
Cuttlebug Challenge want to see Glitter
Stamping Vacation had a "Pick 3" theme and I chose Buttons (around the mat), Glitter (on the dp) and Pearls (tiny ones on the ribbon)
Tuesday Taggers had a theme of Festival of Light
Winter Wonderland wanted to see a Candle and Tilda is holding one.
Fabs Big Christmas wanted "Ladylike Christmas" as the theme

I chose another of the new Jolly Holly Holiday Collection MAgnolia stamps for this card. This little beauty is called Christmas Morning Tilda and I colored her with Copic's. Then I cut her out and popped her up on the circle.
I used dp from The Fruitcake collection by Basic Grey and the glitteres stripe is from the Laundry Line by My Minds Eye. I aged the chipboard flourishes with 3 different chalk inks until I got it just how I wanted it. The big flower is Prima and the felt flower from Hobby Lobby.
I really like the aged/vintage feel to this card, I struggle with this type of card and won't admit quite how long it took for me to finish it! LOL

The inside is more dp and I added another flower cluster to the message mat.

I love the "tip toeing" Tilda is doing in this image, she wants to be the 1st down to the Christmas Tree this year :)

Have a great rest of your Sunday and if you have some crafting time be sure to join us over at Pile It On.
Katie
