WOC #39 ~ Christmas for a Friend

**Winners of My Christmas Candy can be found below**

WOW can you believe we are only days away from Christmas?!  Are you all ready for the holiday season?  I only have one more present to buy and that is for my hubby!  My sister and I ventured out shopping on Saturday...wowsers was it busy....note to NOT wait until the weekend before Christmas to do your shopping next year! LOL!  The people were crazy!!!  However, my sister and I did have a very fun day!

Today marks the last Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge for 2011!  WOW where has this year gone?  We have loads of fun cooked up for you for 2012 and can't wait to see what you all create!  This week's challenge is to create a Christmas Creation for a Friend!
I've made a very special card for a dear friend of mine who has gone through some trying times this year.  I hope that this card brings a little bit of sunshine and love to her during the holiday season! xoxo!  I haven't inked up a lot of my Maggie stamps recently so I though I would use Starlight Tilda from the Merry Christmas 2010 collection for this card.  Papers are from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Christmas Collection and edges have been accented with 80 grit Gold German Glass Glitter!  I absolutely LOVE the added sparkle that this gives!  Corners have been decorated with Decorative Metal Corners in Gold.
Tilda was colored with Copics and pastel pencils!  Her wings were glitzed with Star Dust Stickles and her star was blinged with Gold Diamond Range Ultra Fine Flower Soft.  She has been popped up onto a SB Blossom from the Blossom Tags & Accents Set.

Copic Colors Used: Hair: E34, E57, E59, E79, Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20, Dress: E31, E50, E53, E55, RV34, RV69, RV39, Socks: RV34, RV69, RV39, Wand: Y21, Y26, Y28, E31, E49, E74.
Wild Orchid Crafts flower arrangement consists of: 25mm Rose, Cherry Blossom, 15mm Rose, 10mm Roses, Gold Glitter Holly Berries, Hip Rose, and Stamens.  There's also branches made with my MS branch punch that were coated in Frosted Lace Stickles to make them appear like they just got a fresh coat of snow!  25mm Bown Gingham Ribbon and the gorgeous Pearl String Trim is also from WOC!
More WOC upper arrangement has been accented with a gorgeous gold Snowflake Charm.  Sentiment is from PTI and was stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa.
One more angled view for you!  I wish you all a blessed Holiday Season!
