Our Challenge for you at LHOSM this time is a nice and easy ‘Anything Goes’ to give you a chance to use some of the lovely new stash from your Christmas gifts. I’ve chosen a sweet Tilda that recently arrived in the post, Tilda in Evening Dress from the Little Moscow collection and created this pretty gift set:

This little Tilda is just perfect for those special age Birthdays, This time I’ve created a 40th card but a 21st or 18th would work perfectly as well I’ve chosen a Magic card to showcase her, simple but very effective. You will find another example of a Magic card on my blog here and a link to the tutorial to create one of your own if you would like

Tilda is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Cryogen White Card and coloured with Copic Sketch Markers. The Copics used are as follows: skin: E11, E00, E000, R20 hair: E47, E44, E43, E42, E40 clothes: W5, W3, W1, W00 I added some sparkle and elegance to her dress with Kindy Glitz

The inside looks like this:

The basket:

The basket is very easy to make and perfect for that simple gift, I’ve added a pretty Doohickey tag and some gorgeous flowers to complete the scene, If you would like to create a basket of your own the tutorial I used here
