"A Very Merry Christmas" - Magnolia

On this card I have used 2 more of my new DT Magnolia stamps...."HV08 Tilda decorate christmas Tree" and "HV08 Christmas Tree". Both of these stamps are from the "Holiday Collection 2oo8" I think this little Tilda is so cute with her little basket of ornaments...and the tree is so easy and fast to color.

Magnolia stamps can be purchased from Phebe at The Town Scrapper, Diana Crick's Magnolia-licous store, Magnolia-A-Holic and the Magnolia Store.

I used prismacolor pencils (oms) and twinkling h20's to color these images.

Tilda and the star are popped up on foam dimentionals.

The lovely pearl snowflake, poinsettia and leaf are from Magnolia.

The sentiment is embossed with SU winter white pdr and is from "Penny Black"

The star ..I cut out of card stock ....put versamark on ...then SU heat and stick powder ....heated it up and added gold glitter...I did this a few times for good coverage.

Ink - versafine black, bashful blue, bordering blue, barely banana, close to cocoa

Paper - GP cs, dcwv, daisy d, anna griffin

Accessories - flowers, bling, brads, leaves, embossing pdr, glitter, stickles, ribbon, lace, stitching, quick kutz scroll die, martha stewart border punch, foam dimentionals

Keep Hoppin' for High Hopes candy!!

Have a Great Day!! and Thank You all for your Wonderful comments!!
