Just Magnolia # 70, WOC Challenge# 4...A Gift for You!

Good Morning crafty Friends! I made this card yesterday for the Just Magnolia Challenge. They have a fabulous sketch by Dawny P this week! I also thought I would join in the Make it Sparkle challenge at Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge...I am totally loving my WOC flowers they are so scrumptious and I love the liquid adhesive that they sell to stick them down too...fabulous stuff!

I love this sweet image of Tilda with gifts from the Wedding Collection...she is so versatile and I thought she would be perfect for a Christmas card, this being my first Christmas card for the season. I teamed her up with this Creative Imaginations Christmas Baking paper and used one of the coordinating sticker for the sentiment. I also used one of my Catslife press sentiment stamps and stamped it on a QuicKutz tag! I used some American Crafts Ric Rac and red dollar store half pearls with Wild Orchid and Prima flowers to embellish.

To make my WOC flowers sparkle as per this week's challenge, I embossed them with Ranger Ink Gold Embossing Tinsel...and trust me these beautiful WOC flowers are very sparkly IRL now! Totally loving this Embossing Tinsel that I just found at Crop Circles in Peterborough and I also added some Gold ICE Stickels to Tilda for a little extra sparkle!

And here is the inside of the card!

Well, thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my first Christmas card!

Hope you can do some crafting today...I know I will be the boys have gone to the local car races and Hannah and I are going to get crafty,smile!

Love the way you've tied the colour of the ricrac ribbon is echoed in the colours of ribbons on the parcels of the image. Just lovely with those red pearls too.

PS - I missed out half my sentence (tired after yesterday's travelling & trying to catch up) what I meant to say was the grey of Tilda's clothing & her hair ribbons with the grey parcel ties work so well with the grey ricrac - it's so beautifully detailed.
