I hope you are doing well, and that you are getting prepared for Christmas, as it IS round the corner now! I am here to share with you another card, to celebrate a brand new fabulous challenge at Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog ! This month we had a wonderful number of entries, 50 of them wonderful creations!! Thank you for sharing with us your awesome talent!
Now enough words... here is my take for this month's challenge, a shaker card - my first of this sort. I had an amazing time creating it, although it was very time consuming :) Nonetheless, I really loved doing it, especially the little reindeer scene - all created with Distress Inks (except the reindeer which is a die cut).
My Mr Snowie (from the So Jolly So Snowy 2009 Collection) was coloured with Distress inks and then I added a little amount of detail using watercolour pencils. On the other hand, the paper I used is from Dovecraft Winter Wonderland pack - quite an old pack, but I like many of its papers. I just love the shades of blue for Christmas, I seldom use the traditional Christmas colours anymore :D
I invite you to go and check the amazing Design Team makes for this one, and that you join in the fun, with a chance for a wonderful prize or a Guest DT spot.
Check out the details and the poinsettia and snowflake arrangement which I created. Lots and lots of glitter on this card. I can vouch that it is amazingly blingy :)
Remember that at MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS Store you can find lots of Magnolia stamps, dies and other stuff - also all that you need for foamiran flowers, lovely charms, lace and many more!! I can never get enough!!
Some challenges for Mr Snowie:

Big hugs xx
