Cute Card Thursday + Magnolia Down Under
This weeks challenge at Cute Card Thursday is to have lots of glitter on your card and I have made my card following the sketch at Magnolia Down Under. I have used another of last year's Christmas Magnolia stamps, this one is Edwin Skiing and is one of my favourites. I have coloured the image with Distress Inks (again!!) and used some old Basic Grey papers. The label and snowflakes have been cut with Nesties and the Wizard and the swirl and border are EK Success punches. I have run the lighter green paper through the Cuttlebug with the script embossing folder and then sanded it a bit. The glitter is on the smallest snowflake and under Edwin's feet but it doesn't show up in the photo. I hope you'll be able to join in this weeks challenge as the DT cards are all gorgeous and we have a fab prize for one lucky winner.
Tilly didn't like the idea of going out yesterday, she got no further than a few steps from the back door, not that I blame her as it was so cold.Supplies
Stamps: Magnolia - Edwin Skiing, Hero Arts - Sentiment
Tools: Distress Inks, Wizard, Nesties, Cuttlebug, EK Success Punches, Glamour Dust
DP: Basic Grey
