Totally Tilda - Icy Christmas - use blue and silver!

Well another fortnight rushes by and once again it is time for a new challenge over at Totally Tilda.  I must just say how fabulous all your entries were for the pink and pearls challenge - some really beautiful girly cards.  Hop on over to Totally Tilda and see if you were our winner or if you made the top 3.  It would be lovely for you all to win but there can only be one winner and our task of picking the top 3 seems to get more difficult with each challenge - but I'm not complaining - it's such fun to see all your hard work so keep 'em coming!!!
So as the title suggests this challenge is called Icy Christmas and we would like you to use blue and silver on your creation and of course the lady herself - our Tilda!  There are always so many stunning entries but sadly still one or two without our girl on and that means that despite all your hard work you wouldn't be considered for the winner/top 3 and that is such a shame.
So here is my card for this challenge:
The papers I have used are from Summer Driggs and are called "Giving".  I have matted all the papers onto silver mirri board.  I then used one of those wonderful Die Cuts from Die Cut Dreams and using my tapestry stamps I stamped a silver sprig sand blue holly leaves as a background. 
I have used one of my favourite Tilda's (the last one that I have of these) and I'm not sure what it is called but I love it.  I have added cyrstal Stickles to the image and cut it out to adhere it to the die cut with silicone. 
I have added three blue roses to which I have also added cyrstal stickles and used two pins one blue and one cream. 
The ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons and I made a double bow using my bow-easy and added a snowflake brad in the centre.  I finished off with two snowflakes top right and two bottom left and a die cut sentiment from Craftwork Cards
Please stop by the rest of the Totally Tilda DT blogs as I know they all have some fabulous creations to show you.  Have fun and good luck.
