A Little Blue Tilda

I made this little Tilda card for a Challenge and then just didn't get her finished in time. Where has the week gone, it's just flown by.
I've used Pink Petticoat Papers, paper pieced Tilda's dress and 3D-ed her pocket and coloured her with ProMakers. The little Doily was from Liz, thank you Liz! The sentiment was done on the computer, another freebie called Buttercrumb and you can download it HERE
The little gems on the wire were really made to decorate a candle but as I'm hardly going to do that, I thought they looked nice here. It doesn't show up very well, but I've wrapped them round a separate piece of printed paper over card. The ribbon was fixed on using one of those X shaped sticky machines. There was a bow, but it didn't look right. The punches I used were Woodware and Martha Steward.
I think my big mistake was using the wrong blue for the flowers, Blueberry instead of Bluebell, at least they match her dress. To finish I covered the flowers and leaves with Stickles Glitter. I've used Christmas papers and a Christmas Tilda, so could this be counted as a Blue Christmas Birthday Card? Hope so! I'll probably send it to a friend who's birthday is on Christmas day! (I'll add Merry Christmas later!) Thank you for stopping by.
