Magnolia Highlites - November sketch challenge

For the month of November, Magnolia-licious Highlites gave us this sketch as our monthly challenge...

...and here is my card...

Stamps: Tilda Skiing

Ink: Memento, Copics

Paper:DCWV textured card stock, Classic K Bailey (K&Co), SU! DSP.

Embellishments: Sizzix Snowflakes die cut, rhinestone brad, Fiskars Snowflake border, fuzzy yarn, organza ribbon, silicone glue (for the 3-D image), Cuttlebug Embossing Folder (Snow)

The other inspiration for this card was my desire to use crochet flowers on my cards. So, I got out a small hook and some yarn and started to crochet. I was really just playing around, but liked the scarf look of a chain stitch with the fuzzy yarn. I put together a hat as well, and voila, a stylish skier. I should note that I carried the fuzzy yarn a little further and tied it with the organza ribbon.

I wanted to create a 3-D Tilda to emphasize the scarf. I love how it adds dimension to the image.

I also added some "snow" with liquid applique to ground Tilda to the card.

I love the 3-D Tilda and the idea of "dressing" her. So, watch for more projects like this.

Have a great day!
