Christmas Heart Tilda - A New Challenge At LHOSM

Hello, lovely blogger friend's.
I hope you are well?

It's time once again for a new challenge over on the Lovely Haenglar or Sweet Magnolia blog
This is our final challenge of 2017
Our month long challenge theme is......................ANYTHING GOES
Our wonderful sponsor is The Rubber Buggy

I have made a Christmas card.

I used Christmas Heart Tilda from Magnolia A Lovely Christmas 2015 collection.

I coloured her with Polychromos pencils in sepia colours, and fussy cut around her.

I've also used some lovely dies from Doohickey club vol 17 Christmas/Winter on my card 😊

Suha, the store owner at Swedish House Crafts has one left to buy. So if you are interested in buying this gorgeous selection of Christmas/Winter dies, you can buy them HERE plus if you enter code DONNASAID5OFF at the checkout this will entitle you to 5% off your purchase of Vol 17. 
You can also use the code if you want to pre order Vol 18 or 19. How fab is that?

Here is my card

For the shape of my card I used KoKreate large frame frilly #2, and Maja Design "Home for the Holiday's papers.
Other dies used are Marianne Design Anja's Vintage decoration, Sizzix "On the Edge" snowflurries, Joy Crafts Ice crystal, and magnolia Doohickey bloomy tag.

I have inked the papers, and die cuts with Tim Holtz Vintage photo distress ink.

I created a fireplace scene using the new dies from Vol 17 Christmas/Winter.
I added 3mm red s/a pearl flatbacks to the garland, and added glamour dust to the flame.
I used 2mm foam tape behind all the die cuts to give a lovely 3D effect.

I used some sticky alphabet letters to spell the word NOEL.

For the Festive arrangement I used green moss, a cinnamon stick, pine cones, and wine coloured pomegranate apples.
I used Sizzix holiday greens to die cut the holly, and place it between the arrangement.

A closer look at Christmas Heart Tilda.
I have dotted her eyes with a white gelly roll pen, and used glamour dust on the heart to make it all sparkly.

Inside the card is decorated.

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