Tilda Makes A Christmas Wish......

Good morning Peeps!

Here is a card I made using this week's sketch over at Friday Sketchers.... it really was a fun one to work with and I enjoyed adding all the layers with my Memory Box Mistletoe papers. This Tilda is one from the new Magnolia Christmas collection.

Do you know I have a bowl of pot pourri in my front room and it has lots of cinnamon sticks in it..... well I sat looking at it the other day and suddenly thought it would be great to use one of the sticks on a card..... and now I have a nice Christmas card with extra smell appeal too, lol!

I'm sure there are more challenges out there that fit the bill for my card, so I'm off to check them out right away......

UPDATE: I found some so here goes.....

I don't know how you always get it so perfect but you sure do!
love the cinnamon sticks and those poinsettia die cuts look cute - which ones are these?? Not marianne's anyway.
OK, gonna go and consume some lemsip, it's quickly becoming one of main food groups here.
