Cute Card Thursday #143 - One for the Kids

Happy Thursday!

Christmas is just around the corner, and this week, Cute Card Thursday asked us to make "One for the Kids." I decided to make an ornament for my sweet little great niece who is celebrating her first Christmas this year. Here is her ornament.

Paper: Figgy Pudding
Accessories: Cricut, Storybook cartridge, Tim Holtz Baroque die, Tim Holtz Ornate Plates, branch punch, flowers

I colored this sweet Tilda with distress inks. I added some tattered rose to her hair to give here a strawberry blond color (like my great niece). 

I used gold paper to create letters for Anika's 1st Christmas. I added charms for extra pizazz. 

I am also entering this in Magnolia Down Under Challenge (Red, Brown and Cream) and Magnolia-licious Highlites (A Word Project).

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!

Your ornament is wonderful! Your niece will cherish it for her whole life. I think you picked the perfect Tilda for her first Christmas and have coloured her beautifully! Love the charms hanging down - they will grab her attention this very first year. Great that you put her name and the year on the back. Now you must make her one each year as I do for my Grandchildren LOL LOL
Big hugs, Candy
