Sparkling Tilda And The Ribbon Girl Magnolia Only Challenge - Anything Goes

Hello, Lovely blogger friend's.
I hope you are well.
It's the last Sunday of the month which means it's time for the Magnolia October challenge over on The Ribbon Girl challenge blog, and this time the theme is ANYTHING GOES
We want to see any type of card/project as long as it has a Magnolia image or Magnolia Doohickey die/s on it.

I have made another Christmas card.
I used Sparkling Tilda from the So Jolly Under The Mistletoe Collection 2009.
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Neenah cardstock and cut out using a Joy Crafts Noor Design oval.
I have coloured the image with Prismacolor & Polychromos pencils.

For the shape of the card I usedGoKreate large frame frilly #2 and Maja Design Vintage Frost basics papers from LLC
Other dies used are Marianne Design Anja's Vintage Decoration, Christmas tree 1 and Ivy Circle. Sizzix On The Edge Snow flurries. Magnolia Doohickey lovely fence. La La Land cherry blossom branches and heart doily border, Joy Crafts Christmas Winter sentiment.
I have inked the die cuts with Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink.
I used lots of gorgeous products from The Ribbon Girl online store.
Here is a list. Just click on the link to take you to the product.

Here you can see a close up of the flower arrangement.
I coated everything with Snow - Tex.

Here is another close up.
I wrapped the irridescent twinkle tinsel around the tree and adhered the gorgeous sparkly 28mm snowflake diamante embellishment to the top.
The bronze pine cones are tied with natural hemp twine to the fence and I tied a bow with the natural hemp twine through the eyelet on the Christmas stocking  charm.
Again, I coated everything with Snow - Tex.

A close look at Sparkling Tilda. She is an oldie, but adorable image.
I surrounded the image with frantage shabby white embossing enamel and 3mm white s/a pearl flatbacks.
I used glamour dust on Tilda's wings, halo and frill on her sleeves.
I adhered a length of 3mm white pearl bead string around the image and dotted Tilda's cheeks with a white gelly roll pen.

Inside the card is decorated with design paper and a Spellbinders floral oval.

I loved making this Christmas card.
I hope I have inspired you to come and join in with our current challenge?
