I hope you will join us in this colour challenge. The prize is a $25 Gift Certificate from Diana's store Magnolia-licious.
This adorable Tilda is called Tilda on Ornament and she is from the new A Merry Little Christmas Collection 2010, available from Diana's on-line store Magnolia-licious.
Oh, I'm also using this card for the following challenges:

Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge # 112 - Christmas.
ABC DT Challenge Blog - Non-Traditional Holiday Colour Challenge.
This is called a buckle card. It's like a gate card, but you add a 'belt' to one side of the card that you insert through a slot/opening that you've cut out on the other side. This is to keep the two side closed. I first saw this type of card on Claudia's blog about a year and a half ago, but this is only my third buckle card. I should really do more of this--I like this style of card.
I've put another image inside the card. This is called Vintage Tilda from the same collection as the image I have used on the front of the card.
If you want to make this buckle cards, once you've decided on the width of your belt--you can make it any size you want (mine is 2 inches wide)-- make the slot/opening 1/8 inch wider .
Thanks so much for dropping by. I really do appreciate your visit during this busy time. I'm sure everybody's scrambling to get their Christmas cards and decorations ready in time. I'm getting a bit panicky myself...LOL.
