Tilda with Christmas Presents

I've hardly done any crafting this past week - the weather over the Easter break has been absolutely amazing and so we have spent much of the weekend in the back garden.  We had a new fish pond last autumn and so we have had to do some finishing-off work and have planted around the pond too.  I'm really pleased with it; I just hope the heron doesn't visit us again!  Even Monty, my agorophobic cat, had a little walk onto the patio - he couldn't go on the grass though - he completely freaks out!

So, with the weather so warm, I had to cool things down a little by making a Christmas card.  I haven't used my Tilda's for quite a while too and I love this Christmas one.  (Might be time to buy a new Tilda stamp or two!)

Here's what I've used:
Tilda with Presents stamp by Magnolia, coloured with Pro Markers
Marianne doily die
My new Christmas Fancy papers by Dovecraft - half price sale bargain!
Cat's Life Press - circular sentiment stamp
Flowers, ribbon and jewels from stash

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:

Sketch and Stash - free sketch challenge (I used sketch #11 and my new papers)
Party time Tuesdays - Anything goes
Wee Memories - Anything girly
Sparkles - Anything goes
