"Silent Night" for someone Special

Good evening to all my crafty friends, I hope you are all well. Here is tonights card which is using my new Magnolia stamp - Silent Night which I just love so much.

I have coloured her with my watercolour crayons and added a good sprinkling of gold glitter.  She has been mounted on some Core'dinations whitewash card which has been embossed with my Cuttlebug swirls folder. The card has also been sanded and distressed around the edges. The other paper I have used is from my Artylicious CD Rom - Season's Greetings. I have used the sketch from Sketch Saturday shown below.

Now recently I won a candy from Martine at the Craft Table - a very talented lady. In amongst the goodies were the lace or crochet work, roses and Glitter that I have used. The roses are gorgeous and I have just put a little glitter on the edges of the petals.

I typed out the sentiment myself using a free font called Santas Big Secret mounted on gold miri card.

As usual I have entered this card in some other challenges as follows:-

Practical Scrappers - Anything Christmas,

Sunflowers and Dragonflies - Christmas Card,

Just Magnolia - Card for someone Special (This is for my Mum),

Stamp Something - Glitzy,

Saturday Spotlight - Christmas Flowers (Christmas Rose plus Tildas Christmas pole),

Die Cut Dreams - Green, Beige and Cream,

Cupcake Craft Challenge - Christmas Carol and

Magnolia Down Under - Bedazzled.

I look forward to reading your thoughts and appreciate your visit.
