Santa Edwin and his little helper! Allsorts DT Wk 129 Black/White plus One

Morning sweet blogging friends,
Hope you are all ready for another
 challenge. I's my turn to host this week and I hope you enjoy playing along with the theme I've thought of which is
Black and White plus one other colour.
 My mission is to make as many Christmas projects as I can for the next few DT challenges that I have to get done, killing two birds with one stone! No matter who's turn it is to host the challenge I always give 110% but thought I was going to let myself down this week. However, I eventually pulled myself together and managed to create this double shutter Christmas card, I must apologise now for the number of pics but one photo doesn't do a card this size justice, so make yourself comfy with a cuppa!

The card, when closed, fits TOMIC's challenge this week of Edwin plus sketch. 
Hope you can see the snowflake charm hanging from a button! 

The card fully opened out:

Close up of Jolly Tilda on a pile of presents, the torn paper around her is supposed to be a snowdrift but you may have to stretch the imagination for that one!

A couple of tags on the back for a message:

Magnolia paper - Sweet Christmas Dreams/Sweet Flurry Blue
Magnolia Doo Hickey's - Antique lace/tag, heart swirl branch
Nestie's - lacey circle and labels two
Magnolia stamps - Jolly Tilda, Santa Edwin and Wishful armchair coloured with TH DI's
Sentiment and snowflake stamps from the girl's paperie 'tinsel and twig' clear stamp set (free when I took part in Sir Stampalot's Freebie Friday!)

TOMIC - Edwin plus sketch
Magnolia-licious highlights - Photo inspiration (winter scene)

Allsorts are sponsored this week by:
Challenge sponsors

Full details of challenge and prize can be found on the Allsorts blog, if you have time visit my teamies blogs as they have made some awesome inspiration as always!

Many thanks for taking a look at my creation today, hope to pop by your blogs this week.
Enjoy your weekend and have fun

Wow Nicola, what a fab card and such a lovely fold, sort of lots of hidden surprises.

As you quite rightly say, it would never do for us all to like the same thing, give me a Tilda and sheer panic would set in, yet I love to see what others do with them.
