Magnolia DT + Cute Card Thursday 'Lots of Sparkle' Challenge
What a fabby mail day I had yesterday when my latest DT package from Magnolia arrived with some of the gorgeous Christmas 08 collection stamps in it. How cute is this little Tilda reaching up to put a bauble on the tree. I just had to use the stamps straight away and these are just perfect for the CCT challenge this week which is 'Lots of Sparkle'. I have put glitter on the tree, Tilda's wings, the vines and the baubles, the flowers and leaf (which does show up more in 'real' life) are also pre glittered and the baubles on the main card are stamped and embossed something I haven't done for a long time!!
I just couldn't get a decent photo of the sparkle but if you click on the photo it does show up a little better and I have added a close up of Tilda and the tree.

The Christmas 08 collection will be available from Magnolia in mid October but I will be posting cards made with some of the other stamps over the next few days, so I hope you'll be able to pop back and check them out.

Tools: Prismacolors, Sansador, Distress Inkes, Glamour Dust, Art Institute Gold Glitter, Gems from Stash, Gold Embossing Powder, Sizzix Die, Cuttlebug
