Magnolia Down Under + Papertakes Challenges
I've finally got around to making another card, seems like ages since the last one!! This card fits the Papertake challenge of Something New, both the Magnolia Tilda stamp and papers are new and the Magnolia Down Under challenge which is to use a stamp or something for another use. This Tilda and the papers are from the So Jolly Winter Collection and I have used them to make a birthday card so I think this counts! The flowery swirl has been cut on the Cricut (I am determined to us it more this year) and I have added lots of Stickles to give a bit of sparkle. Tilda has been coloured with Distress Inks and I added punched photo corners and pearls. Not a very good photo I'm afraid but the light is really bad here today, if you click on the photo it shows the true colours a lot better!
I hope the weather is getting better wherever you are, it is starting to thaw here at the moment.
Have a good evening.Supplies
Stamp: Magnolia So Jolly Collection - Christmas Eve Tilda
Tools: Distress Inks, Cricut, Nesties, Wizard, Flowers, Pearls, Lace, Stickles
DP: Magnolia

This is such a sweet card. The flowers on the bottom are just so pretty & 3 dimensional.
