A Card for Totally Tilda Challenge Blog - "Red and Green"

Good Afternoon Ladies well the sun is out and its looking fabulous mind you the leaves are falling very quickly now so I suspect we are in for an early winter, not a happy thought dont you agree? Todays card has been created for the Totally Tilda Challenge "Red and Green" and Ive used this image from last year and coloured her with my copic pens, then cut her out with my circle Nestabilitie Die, the outer ring is the Double Circle from Marianne and its just the right size for this large die, the only thing is you have to wiggly it a bit to hide behind the image as the actual circle cut out is almost the same size as the Nestabilitie one. The sentiment is another of the Tilda ones and thats been mounted on some red card with some red pearls placed on the berries.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of green card and three of the papers from the Papermania "Classic Christmas" paper/card pack, which I felt was ideal for this card, the first paper is a green base pattern with red and white reindeer on, the second is a stripe pattern and the third one is a diamond pattern both of these are on red card. Across the middle Ive wrapped a red and green tartan ribbon and fixed to the back of the first layer.
I then positioned my mounted image slightly to the right and the sentiment at the top on the left, I then created a flower spray from some punched out holly leaves, berries and one Poinsetta flower and attached them to my card with some silicone glue at the top on the right hand side. I did pop some stickles on the petals and also some glitter on my image.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
