Magnolia-licious Doily Challenge

Hello, Friends. It’s time for another fun challenge at Magnolia-licious. Our theme for the last challenge of the year is…

Use a Doily!

My card features “Cozy Christmas Tilda” and “A Joyful Christmas” sentiment from the New Winter Wonderland collection. I used three doilies on my card with two Magnolia Mini Doilies and Tim Holtz On the Edge Vintage Doily. 

I colored Tilda with Copics in blue and brown to match my Bo Bunny Woodland Winter designer papers. And I used a dotted coloring technique to make Tilda’s sweater look fluffy. My DP panels were machine stitched and distressed for lots of texture. I played with lots of die cuts for this card with tags, flourishes, lace and flowers.

Here’s a close-up of Tilda.

Don’t forget to leave a comment on any of the DT blogs and/or the Challenge blog for a chance to win a weekly prize. The winner is announced every week during the “W”ednesday post.
