ABC christmas challenge

Evening all, quick post before i am off to bed. Hopefully i will get a lay in tomorrow, much needed.
On to my card and its another christmas one. I still have a few more to make but i think you can never have enough cards.

The background card i have made my self. I took a piece of green bazzill cardstock stamped the small poinsettia from this set with a clear embossing ink pad and used gold embossing powder and heat embossed it. The gems are as always from ebay.

The gems look blue but they are actually green.

Look at this little cutey. Tilda is from the new magnolia collection, tilda on ornament. Tilda is coloured with distress inks.

The striped paper behind tilda is from the papermania paper pack a silent night.

Over at abc christmas challenge blog they have a few things you have to include in you card to qualify for the prize. First thing is to use 1 of they sketch`s or both if you wish. Secondly you have to have 3 V`s included on your card.
1) vertical card
2) vert(green in french)
3) victorian velvet(i used this colour distress ink to colour tilda`s clothing)

I hope this makes me eligible for the prize draw.
