Magnolia Christmas



Good evening everyone, and for those who have asked yes I am feeling a little better, and the little dragons are on the mend too - thank you for your thoughts.
My card today is hopefully just in time for a couple of challenges - cutting it too fine for my liking. Firstly , the sketch at Just Magnolia shown below which was drawn by Martine.




The image is a new one from Magnolia called Santas Little Helper who is sitting on the Noel stamp, she has been coloured using my favourite water colour crayons and there is a touch of glitter on her hat.


The layers are gold miri card, then red card followed by a paper from the Seasons Greetings CD Rom by Artylicious. There is some of the silk effect plastic in a gorgeous Christmas green with the charms attached. I have mounted the image on Core'dinations Whitewash card stock - distressed as usual. The flowers were made using red miri card and ordinary red card plus green card punched with different sized flower punches and with a yellow gem in the middle - trying for my homemade poinsettia.

I will also enter this card in the following challenges:-

Alphabet Challenge - Green and Gold,

Magnolia Down Under Christmas Card,

Simoon Says Challenge - So Charming,

Quixotic Challenges - Be Charming,

The Corrosive Challenge - Red and Green,

Cupcake Craft Challenge - Red and Green,

The Pink Elephant - Favourite colouring medium and

Stamp, Scrap and Doodle - Christmas card.

Must hurry now to enter this in time. Please let me know what you think, I love reading your comments.

Hugs

Glad you are feeling better. I'm still poorly and losing my sense of humour. This Tilda image makes me smile though which is more than can be said of her.
