Basic Grey Challenges Food and Drink

This is my card (Xmas no.38!) for the new challenge starting today over at Basic Grey Challenges.  The theme is Food and Drink and I decided to use this combination of two Magnolia stamps.  I've not coloured up a Tilda in ages and really enjoyed making this one with her sitting on the tin of chocolates (by the look on her face, I think she's eaten them all!).
My Basic Grey papers are Nordic Holiday , and I've coloured with my usual mix of Pro and Flexmarkers.  I've then added some glossy accents to the jar front and to the berries on the  candy cane (which is from a  Sizzix die.
The recipe card is a Lili of the Valley stamp which pulls out for easy reference should the recipient decide to try it out!

The gingerbread border die is an EK Success one that I bought at a fair, and the rest of the embellies are from stash, including the felt gingerbread man ( so cute!)

As always, our wonderful sponsor, Simon Says Stamp is offering one lucky winner a fab $25 shopping spree in the Simon Says Superstore
