WINTER BEAUTY...........

Happy November everyone!!
I have my card for the
Magnolia-licious HighLites Challenge blog.

Our talented hostess this month is
Angie Hunt! She’s challenged us to create projects using either one or both of the Inspiration Photos below!

What fun photos to give us a bit of inspiration.

I have used #355 MIDWINTER TILDA I have masked her with a cute little snowy fence by Bild Malarna called Snowy Fence. Tilda goes so well with so many accessory stamps out there. That is one of the reasons that I LOVE MAGNOLIA STAMPS. Now don't forget that all Magnolia items can be bought at the Magnolia-licious store along with a lot of things for your stamping needs. Diana has first class service and I tell you the shipping is fast!!

I have colored my little snowy scene with my copic markers. I have added snow tex and stickles to the snow on my image. To give it a bit of texture that is so hard to see in the photos. I have also added stickles to the little lantern.
Papers: Magnolia, one unknown and Bazzill cardstocks.
Embellies: ribbon, snowflake buttons and ornament, acrylic winter tag, trims, pearls. I have used my MS snowflake punch and tucked my flakes around the upper half edge of my card. I have added skickles to them to make them sparkle.
I have used my distressed inks around all paper edges and addd stickles. I have sewn on my card.

The Magnolia-licious store has the
NEW Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection in stock in both regular size and mini size right now!

Happy November to you too! Janiel when I saw this card I was so in awhhhh!This is one of my favourite cards you have made this year...I know I love them all but there is something that just melts in my heart about this one...must be the softness you have created with the soft blues!
