Poinsettia Tilda - A New Challenge At LHOSM

Hello, lovely blogger friend's.
Once again it's time for a new challenge over on the Lovely Haenglar or Sweet magnolia blog.
For one whole month our challenge theme is..............USE TRIM
(Pearl trim, seam binding, lace, twine, organza rose trim, pom pom trim etc)

Our wonderful sponsor is The Rubber Buggy

 I have made a Christmas card for my Niece.

I used Poinsettia Tilda from Magnolia Aspen Holidays 2016 Collection available to buy at
Swedish House Crafts
The image is stamped with memento rich cocoa ink onto Bristol board extra smooth cardstock, and cut out using a Joy Crafts Noor! oval.
I have coloured the image with Prismacolor & Polychromos pencils.

For the shape of my card, I used Gokreate large frame frilly #2, and Maja Design "Vintage Frost Basics" papers available to buy at Swedish House Crafts
I lightly sanded the edges of the papers.
Other dies used are; Marianne Design Anja's Vintage decoration, Spirit of Christmas snowflake border, Joy Crafts ice crystal circle, Sizzix holiday greens, Magnolia Doohickey bloomy tag, and the trees are from Magnolia Doohickey box Vol 12.

You can pre order Vol 17 & Vol 18 at present  from Swedish House Crafts HERE

A close look at the flower arrangements, and trees.
I place Sizzix holiday greens in among the larger arrangement. Everything thing has has a dusting of Snow - Tex.
I die cut the trees using the design papers, and adhered a tiny red pearl to the centre of the stars.

A close look at Poinsettia Tilda.
I stamped the inside of the oval with an IndigoBlu stamp, and adhered a string of 3mm pearl bead string around the outside.
I dotted Tilda's cheeks, and the leaves on the poinsettia with a white gelly roll pen.

Inside the card is decorated.

We would love you to come along, and join in with our current challenge.
