Show The Way Baby Rudolf And A New Challenge At Simply Magnolia

Hello, lovely blogger friend's.
I hope you are well.
It's time once again for a new challenge at Simply Magnolia and this time around our challenge theme is.........................CHRISTMAS IS COMING!
Instead of a sponsor this fortnight, the prize will be a Guest DT spot for Simply Magnolia!

I have made another Christmas card.
I used Show The Way Baby Rudolf from the Winter Wonderland Christmas Collection 2013.
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Neenah cardstock.
I have coloured the image with Polychromos pencils.

For my shaped card I used GoKreate XXL frilly frame #5 and Maja Design Home For The Holidays papers from LLC
Other dies used are Cherry Lynn English tea party doily and French pastry doily. Marianne Design Ivy circle. Sizzix on the edge snow flurries. Joy Crafts Ice crystal circle, Winter sentiment  and Vintage flourishes holly leaves. Doohickey club Christmas trees coated with Snow - Tex.
The pretty "Marie Therese" white lace is from LLC and the 10mm square white pearl trim is from Wild Orchid Crafts.

A close look at the flower arrangement. 
The larch cone, white flower spray, blue lilies, bark star, liberty bells and crystal Vintage star pin are all from LLC. The 30mm light Ivory wild rose and 25mm Vintage open roses are from 
Wild Orchid Crafts
I have coated all of the above with Snow - Tex.

I surrounded the image with Frantage shabby white embossing enamel and 3mm white s/a pearls.The frame is Santoro.
I used glossy accents on Baby Rudolf's nose and used glamour dust on the ground.

Inside the card is decorated with design paper and a Spellbinders stately circle.

I hope you like my card.
