Just Magnolia DT - Dawny's sketch

Woohoo Friday at last, it's been a long week. I managed to do all of the wallpapering I had to do yesterday so I have only one wall left to paint when my hubby moves the piano for me at the weekend!! I think I was super motivated yesterday after watching every single one of the incredible rescues of the 33 Chilean miners. I watched the first 5 on a rerun and that was it, I just had to see them all come out bless them and so I had the channel on all day and night until 2am so I could hear it and every time they said one was nearly out I ran to the TV to watch. I cried at every single one too, and even more so when their little sons and daughters were there, it was so moving. It is the most amazing thing I have seen for a long time. My Grandad was a miner here in the UK so I think it struck a big chord with me.

Onto today's card which is my Just Magnolia card. This week we have another fabulous sketch by Dawny. We also have some incredibly exciting news......the amazing Claudia has joined our team!!! I'm so thrilled to be working on another team with her! I have used papers from the gorgeous MME glitter christmas stack and distressed the edges with walnut stain distress ink.
I love this Edwin from last year's winter kit, he's so cute. I was hanging on for the new kit before I made my card but it got to Wednesday and I had to get it done! I have coloured him with copics and added stickles to his socks and wings. I masked him so that I could ink around him with antique linen distress ink and I have also stamped the Christmas text stamp with the same ink.
The large rose is from Hobby Craft and the small ones are from Wild Orchid Crafts, all sprayed with gold cosmic shimmer. I added an ivy leaf from Prima and a swirl cut with a doo hickey die. The spotty ribbon is from the Hobby House as are the pins, pearls and button.
I have used one of the new MS Christmas punches on the long edge of one of the layers, the star border - loving that!

Hope you like it and thanks for looking! x
