Challenge #7 at Cooking It Up!

Wow the weeks are flying by!
I can't believe we are on the 7th challenge at my Cooking It Up With Katie blog.
I'd love some more entrants and this could be the challenge to try as I'm offering a prize so run over and check it out!

The recipe is:
Use a Christmas theme
Add Ribbon
Use any current sketch challenge

Stampin For The Weekend want a Christmas card with Red, Green and Gold
Creative Card Crew also wanted Gold (or Silver)
Color Chef had the combo of Red, Green and Cream/White
Charisma had a color combo of Red, Green and White/Silver
Rosie Dees wanted Red, Green and Bling!
Sunflowers and Dragonflies had a theme of Merry Christmas
365 Cards Day 280 had the theme of "Candy Cane"
Cupcake Crafts had the theme of a "Christmas Carol"
Die Cuts R Us wanted a project with a "Holiday Feel"
Just Magnolia had a special monthly challenge of "Make a card for Someone Special", well I'd feel pretty special if I received this card.

I stamped Tilda Sitting With Candy and colored her with Copic's. Then I cut her out and made a present for her to sit on.
The dp is a mixture of Paper Studio and Joanns.
The border punch is from Martha Stewart.

The inside is more dp and a ribbon topped message mat.

Here is a close up of Tilda, all decked out for Christmas!
If you still have time before Christmas I'd love to see you over at Cooking It Up With Katie
