More time to craft - YAY!

Hi everyone

I just love it when the cricket is on!  Hubby is happy to watch cricket and that leaves me free to craft!

I have just got some new spellbinder dies and had to have a play!

Tilda was hand coloured with watercolour pencils, kindy glitz & bling added. 

This is also my first attempt at distressing the edges of background paper - I think I could have done a bit more ;-)

This card fits several challenges:
CuteDaisyMay - Red Christmas
Creatalicious Challenges - Christmas with sparkles & snowflakes
Charisma Cardz Challenge - christmas (I used the previous week's sketch too!)
Magnolia Down Under - magnolia christmas

I have also been working on a card to give to my niece & her new fiance.  The official engagement party is this weekend.  I have already given them their engagement card see here and since they want to buy some new furniture, I thought it would be good to use this 'money in the couch' card.  I have been just waiting for an opportunity to use this idea on a card.  I originally came across it here and here - thanks for the inspiration!

I did not use the same stamp they mention - I have used an image I already had. 

I made a few modifications to the card to cater for the larger Australian $100 note.  I think I am happy with it???
