This little light of mine....


How is everyone doing? Can you believe that its nearly Christmas? I am stunned how fast this year has gone!!! I saw this stamp and now I keep singing 'This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine' so had to be the title!!!

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

Paradise of Magnolia- Christmas
lovely hAnglar or sweet Magnolia- Glitter it up
The Ribbon Girl Blog- Anything goes
Simply Magnolia- Christmas is coming
Midweek Magnolias- Anything Festive

For this card I used one of the new stamps from the latest Magnolia release 'Edwin with Christmas Lantern'. I coloured Edwin using Distress Inks. I wanted to make it rather subtle colours with a pop of red and green in the flowers.

The papers are from last years Maja Design release 'A gift for you'. I love how these have that muted background but the reds and the greens pop so well.

The dies are all by Magnolia except the stocking which is from Spellbinders. I some how had this vision of Edwin looking like kinda that new craze 'Elf on the Shelf' so I added the castle as where else would a Christmas elf live! The fence and the castle have some 'Snow Tex' on. I added some Star dust glitter stickles to both of these and also to Edwin's hat, and belt.

The flowers I made from a Doohickey die and sprayed them with glimmer mist. The middle are a deep red pearl stamen.  The red and blue flowers along with the holly are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The ribbon is from my own stast and the lace with the bling is from Live and Love Crafts.

On the stocking tops I added some Stampendous 'Crushed Glass' in silver along with some clear rhinestones. Around the edge of the image I added some Fran-tage in Aged Silver.

Hope you have a great day.
