Silent Night Tilda

Happy Friday to everyone!  Hope you are all ok and looking forward to your week-end ahead whatever you are doing.  I have just returned from taking my husband up to the hospital for a small op before he starts his treatment, hopefully he will be back home today if not tomorrow.  I have spent more time up there since I retired than when I was working! In anticipation of spending a lot of time up there today I started a card yesterday which I finished off this morning before we went.  The stamp is Silent Night Tilda which, although not new, is new to me and is the first time I have used it.  Although you can't tell to look at it, it took me ages to colour it!

The papers are Nitwits and the poinsetta die is a Marianne die, as is the Christmas tree, which I have covered with Art Impressions Ultra Fine glitter in Angel Dust.  I have put Stickles all around the cut out of the image and the sentiment and Flower Soft around her coat but they don't really show up. Here's another picture and you can see some of the Stickles around the sentiment:

 I will enter this in the following challenges:
