Sketch Saturday #82: Silent Night Tilda

[pleae click on the image to enlarge it - opens new window]

Happy Saturday everyone!

Well, this is the last weekend before the big day - are you ready?  Have you bought all your presents, wrapped them, finished all your baking, decorated the house .... ? If you haven't, don't worry, as you still have 6 more days!  But today is our last challenge of 2009 at Sketch Saturday.  The SS DT girls are having a break next week, and so there will be no challenge on 26th December, but we'll see you again on 2nd January for our very first challenge of 2010, which will be a sketch by me *grin*!

This week we have another wonderful sketch by Jo, and we are being sponsored by Sandra Dry Digi Stamps.

I used the one and only Christmas Magnolia Tilda stamp that I own (...which was uninked until now!) called 'Silent Night Tilda'. I don't often like the cards that I make (I'm super critical of my own work), but I have to say that I love how this card has turned out.  It's just such a shame about the quality of the photo of this card - I really couldn't get the lighting right, the colours are nowhere near what they look like in real life (I don't know why Tilda's gloves and coat look 'peach'!!), and you can't see the gorgeous glittery paper and stickles accents at all, but I guess you get the idea!!

I'd like to enter this card into this week's Colour Create Challenge #34, which is to use the colours PINK, BURGUNDY and IVORY, with the optional extra of ROSES.
Make sure you hop on over to Sketch Saturday and have a gander at the girls' fab creations!

Have a great weekend, and I'll see you tomorrow with my Sunday Sketch & Stamp DT card!

  1. Stunning card hun, fabulous colours, and Tilda looks wonderful. You have every right to be proud, it's a work of art. Hugs, Squirrel xx

  2. Fabulous card Sem. Gorgeous colouring as always and I just love this image. When I went to purchase it those dreaded words SOLD OUT appeared. I agree with Squirrel you should be very proud of this one. With regard to you doing the next sketch and grinning I hope it didn't hurt to much.
