In The Spotlight, and a Challenge card

Hello bloggers.  We have sun and snow today, so a gorgeous winter's day, as long as you're wrapped up warm and cosy. 

I've just discovered my Tilda paper-piecing card was chosen to be in the spotlight on the Copic Creations challenge blog! I'm chuffed to little pieces as I'd worked quite hard on that card and it's probably my favourite that I've ever made.  Thanks very much to everyone that left a comment for that card, both on here and on Docrafts, that means a lot to me.

Now, this is a card I finished last night. It was made for a crafting friend who does visit my blog, so unfortunately she'll see it before she receives it, but she won't know it's for her till she opens it.  I'd coloured the coat golden yellow-red shades, then chose the gold paper to go with it.  You can't see in the photograph, but I've painted gold perfect pearls round the edge of the base paper, mat and image, and used a red ribbon with a gold trim to match the poinsettias:




I'm entering this card in these 2 challenges:

Totally Tilda - Gold & Glitz
C.E.S. Challenge - Vintage Christmas

Keep warm everyone,

Hi Carole, thanks for dropping by my blog - you were my first comments (well, from someone I don't know - my only other one came from my husband). Your Tilda is just gorgeous and her place in the spotlight is more than deserved. I am in awe of your colouring!
