Magnolia Christmas Challenge #31 Tilda Postcard

This is probably my favorite Tilda stamp. She's all bundled up, cozy in her hat and mittens, holding her lantern as she makes her way down to Grandma's house for Christmas dinner. Well, that's the way I picture it anyway, LOL. For some reason, I love lanterns, and old fashioned lamps. I wish there more stamps with lanterns. Maybe I should design my own.... :-)
I've been on a distressing kick lately, and this card fits the bill. Love the look of aged paper! The little round metal-rim tag I've had for years, when I used to sew fabric raggedy dolls I tea-stained them (using real tea or coffee!) and would print a simple sentiment on them to hang from my dolls. I simply ran some waxed thread through the ribbon knot, and tied it around the tag. Cute!
Hope you like it, enjoy your day!
