Tilda's Sleigh Basket

Hello all, Today I have a fun little creation to share: Tilda's Sleigh Basket. This is my first project using one of the gorgeous stamps from the new Sweet Christmas Dreams collection....Love it!

I cut 2 sleigh shapes in brown cardstock with my Cricut Expressions (Winter Woodland cartridge) and decorated them with My Mind's Eye, Lost and Found Christmas papers, half pearls and paper ribbon. I then cut a 2" wide cardstock stripe to put both shapes together and create my basket. To make the handle y used Martha Stewart's lace punch and decorated it with half pearls as well. 


Once the basket was assembled, I decorated one of the sides with my beautiful stamp: "A Little Gift Tilda" and this cute little flowers y made using C.C. Designs Rolling Rose Die and my new favorite tool: Hybrid Petal Roller from Imaginisce. I also added some paper leaves, feathers and a couple of pins. 

My sleigh basket was done but I needed some "goodies" to fill it out with. So, I made these little presents for Santa and Tilda to deliver. Aren't they so cute?

As usual, I colored my Magnolia stamp with Copic markers and added glitter to create sparkly angel wings. 
Skin: E11, E00, E000 and R20. Dress: W5, W3 and W1. Socks and little present: R29, R27, R24, YG 95 and YG93.

I would like to join the following challenges:

TOMIC: Create a Basket
Just Magnolia Challenge: Anything Goes (Optional pearls and lace)
Magnolia-licious Challenge: Foto Inspiration.
