A Christmas Card for Mum and Dad

This Tilda card I made for my Mum and Dad. I used Papermania papers and my Stampin' Up prize papers over some gold miri card that I fixed on to a folded green card, then of course I couldn't find an envelope for it! You've probably spotted that I quite liked these papers as I did a few similar cards, one being Tom's and Emma's card, which I posted here on January 1st. The Christmas Tree brads I think were from Woodware, the image was a swap, which I've had for ages but only just found Christmas Eve! (Yes I was still making cards Christmas morning!) I haven't found her to buy yet, so I'm not sure of her real name but if you've seen her let me know! She has wings, so does that make her an angel?? I hope so, because after doing a spot of blog hopping I found The ABC Christmas Challenge blog. This time round the Challenge is A is for Angel, anyway, I think she's an angel so I'm going to put her into the challenge! Pop over and have a look, I bet you have an angel card that'll fit in with this challenge too! There's also some blog candy going too, all you have to do it post about it and add this badge to your side bar. I did turn off the word variation, it was off for about two to three weeks, but I'm afraid I was swamped with I'm sorry's gone back on!! (No...I've taken it off again...)
Back to the card!! The red dotty ribbon is from my stash. I used double sided tape to fix the ribbon and silicone to add the bow. As you can see, it was a little too wide, so, a sprinkling of gold micro glitter hid the extra stickiness! Sorry for being a terrible blogger lately. To make up for it I've added a few more posts down below...! Hmmm...that sounds a little painful!
