Midweek Magnolias - Christmas in September

Hello, Friends and Happy Hump Day! The Midweek Magnolias Design Team has a new challenge for you and this week our theme is “Christmas in September.” So I hope you get out those lovely Magnolia Christmas stamps, papers and embellies to join us for the challenge. Head over to Midweek Magnolias for some awesome inspiration from the DT and leave some love on their blogs. You’ll have a chance to win a fabulous mystery prize from Magnolia Sweden and I’m told they are fabulous.
My card features the adorable “Little Tilda” from the “Little Christmas Collection” available at Magnolia-licious. This was an easy card to make with a simple design, some die cuts, lace, ribbon and flowers.
My cardstock is from Bazzill and the DPs are from Magnolia and Cuddly Buddly. I colored Tilda with my Copics in the following colors.
Skin: E11, E01, E00, E000
Hair: E35, YR23, Y23
Apparel: B97, B95, B93, B91, C3, C1, C00
 
I gave Tilda’s dress some white polka dots with my Sharpie Extra Fine Poster Paint Pen and used my “C Series” Copics for shading them. Silver Stickles adorns Tilda’s bodice and skirt lace and Stardust Stickles on her wings. I distressed Tilda’s frame and the tag with Stormy Sky, Distress Ink for a little extra color and definition with a few pearls on the frame.
Finally, I added my flowers and used my “Sweet Christmas Dreams” stamp for my tag.
The inside of my card has similar elements from the front with a sentiment from Hero Arts. 

Supplies:
Cardstock – Bazzill; the Paper Company
DPs – Magnolia; Cuddly Buddly
Flowers/Glitter Holly Berries – WOC
Dies Cuts – Magnolia; Spellbinders; Memory Box
Pearls – Recollections
Ribbon – Michaels; Simplicity
Distress Ink - Ranger

I’m entering this card in the following Challenges: 

Crafty Catz – Christmas
Stampin’ for the Weekend – Starting Christmas Early
Penny Black at Allsorts – Early Christmas Makes
Anything Goes Challenge – Early Christmas

I hope my card inspires you to join us this week at Midweek Magnolias. Happy crafting… 

Hugz,
