Glittering Tilda at Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge and WINNER!!
Happy Friday everyone! I am hoping that your week has been an exceptional one and that your are anxiously awaiting a splendid weekend. My week has been a very enjoyable one!! I have finally gotten through the 108 forms of Tai Chi...not that I have them memorized yet BUT I lived to tell about it...lolol AND I have been busily selecting flooring and fabric for my parents house which is going to be Jacque's crafting place, Joie de Vivre Cottage....smiles!! It will be so nice not to have to hop over boxes and paper pads...hahahah.. I will keep you informed of the progress!!! Wooohoooo!!!
Today at the Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge blog we are being hosted by the wonderfully talented Dena and we were asked to use PEARLS and LACE...doesn't that sound fun!!!! We hope you will come over and join in with us this week and show us your wonderful creations!! There is always some lovely prizes for a lucky participant!!
For my card, I used Bazzill for the base and for all double matting, the DP is all from the newest collection of Magnolia papers, and all panels are machine stitched. The darling image I used is #242 Glittering Tilda from the new Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection which is now available at Magnolia-licious...gosh, Diana has all of the stamps, papers, AND MINIS in the shop!!!! She was stamped on X-Press It Blending card and colored with Copics and Promarkers, adding Star Dust Stickles and MS Gold Glitter. For the horizontal I used a 1" Organza Ribbon topped with White Insertion Anglaise Lace and tied into a double flat bow to dangle 3 Miniature Gold Decorative Bells. To add a bit of interest I used a diecut from the Holly Flourish by Cheery Lynn and added some small Self Adhesive Pearls colored with Copics for the berries. The floral treatment is all from Wild Orchid Crafts: 1 3/8" Trellis Rose, Carnations from the Mixed Christmas Color Pack, and Sweetheart Blossoms resting on Holly Leaves. Finally I added more Pearls to soften some corners.
The inside is more of the same papers, ribbon, lace, bells, holly leaves, pearls, and bells! I hope you like my little creation and will decide to join in with us over at the Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge blog.
