Tilda hanging up the ornaments

My first Tilda stamp - I never really "got" them when they first appeared but having had this little beauty for a day............ I'm smitten!! I need some more....like yesterday! I don't know whether it's the stamp or that my colouring is improving (or a combination of the two) but I 'm somewhat pleased with this attempt!
Die Cut Dreams challenge is Tilda with Flowers. I followed  Friday Sketchers sketch - Tilda is coloured with water colour pencils, backing papers were a freebie download called Christmas around the World. I embossed the Cuttlebug folder Christmas tree onto stardream card and sanded it slightly then dusted it with pearlescent chalks, the card was then distressed with Tim Holz inks. Card is finished with poinsettia flowers, tartan bows, a sentiment and some diecut corners.

I'm also entering this in the following challenges:
CHNC - square
