It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Happy Sunday!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…Wow, can you believe it? There’s only 13 days until Christmas and I got all of my shopping done finally. I shopped online a lot this year instead of braving the crowds.
I made another card last night and finished it up this afternoon. This is one of my favorite Magnolias, Unwrapped Tilda. She was the star in a lot of my cards this year.
I created a gate fold card this time just to mix it up a bit. I used some pretty pattern papers from DSWV’s Christmas paper pad.
Here's the inside of the card. I used my Martha Stewart Snowflake punch around the page. I absolutely love these products. They are so versatile and inspires my creativity.  
This is a closeup of Tilda. I used some gold tissue paper, crumpled it up then glued it to her box for added texture and dimension. And never forget the Stickles. When I think of Christmas I always think of glitter.
Here are the Copics I used to color Tilda. When I first started to match the reds in the pattern paper, low and behold none of the reds matched. Then I realized it's more brown than red so her dress was colored with the E0 series.

I'm submitting this card for the following Challenges.

Stamps: Unwrapped Tilda, Magnolia; Sentiment, Hero Arts
Pattern Paper: A Christmas Combo, DCWV
