First Christmas

Hi everyone!!!

Here today with my last post for the week. Its getting awfully dark here in the afternoon, it reached 40 today so it is pretty warm. Mix that with the dark clouds and we could be in for a storm as it really feels like it. So perfect weather to sit and colour in me thinks!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges-

Marvelous Magnolia Challenge blog- No Fall colours
Bunny Zoe Crafts- Shabby Christmas
Time for a Magnolia Challenge- Christmas challenge- stars
Magnolia Mania- Lace and Pearls
Simply Magnolia- Fave colour combo

So for this card I used another older Tilda stamp, 'Tilda blowing snowflake kisses'.  I thought she went well with the stamp sentiment from 'Riley and Company'. This card was made for our nephews first Christmas, he was born on Christmas eve! Such a little cutie!!!

I coloured Tilda with Distress inks. The paper is Maja Design 'Vintage Frost Basics.

The dies are from Magnolia, Noor! Design Noor! Design UK, Memory Box and Tim Holtz. I coated the icicles and the  snowflakes along the edge of the card with Ranger Holographic embossing powder. This stuff is AWESOME!!! On the image itself I used a small snowflake stamp and I embossed it with embossing powder from Lindy's  Stamp gang- these are cool as they are two tone.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the pearl stars are from Live and Love Crafts.  The stars along the top of the card are cut from sparkly blue glitter paper.

I added stickles glitter glue to the snowflakes that Tilda is blowing.

The 1st is cut with a Sizzix die and coated in two crackle paints- 'Brushed Pewter' and 'White Picked Fence'.  I sprayed the flowers with Tattered Angels 'Iridescent Gold' glimmer mist.

For the pearls I added flat back pale blue pearls to the stars and snowflakes.  I edged the Magnolia Star border die with 'Aged Aqua' Fran-tage.  To the top right of the card I added a pale blue pearl brad.

And as you need to wrap up warm in the snow I added a little scarf charm.

On the inside I carried on the star theme with a Magnolia die and some pale blue flat back pearls.

Have a fab weekend!
