White Magnolia-licious Challenge

It's time for another fabulous Magnolia-licious challenge and if you're surrounded by lots of snow like me, you'll have lots of 'WHITE' to inspire you for our colour challenge this week.  

Merry Christmas from sweet Lazy Summer Day Tilda in stock at the Magnolia-licious online store.   I used the Swiss Dots and Swirls Cuttlebug embossing folders on the layer of white cardstock and added Silver Ice Stickles along the distressed edges.  Tilda is surrounded by a large snowflake made with a Spellbinder die and then covered in glitter with pearls and rhinestone embellies.  Background for Tilda sponged with blue chalk as was the distressed circle edge.  Coloured Tilda with my Copics (E000, E01, E11, C5, C7, C9, R000, R20, R81, R83, R85 & R89) and used Stickles for her wings.  I also added the following embellies: Prima rhinestone swirls ~ snowflakes made with a MS punch and glittered ~ mesh pearl ribbon ~ and a Whimsy Christmas ticket sentiment.

Play along with us and don't forget to checkout the DTs gorgeous creations for inspiration.  One lucky participant will win a $25 Gift Certificate to spend at the Magnolia-licious store.

Happy Holiday Hugs,
Maria

Hi Maria!
Tilda looks extra special in that little round frame. I love the embossing and the silver ice Stickles on your distressed edging.
Your coloring is beautiful. the little snowflakes in the corner finish the card off nicely.
