Just Magnolia DT - Donalda's sketch

We have a gorgeous sketch from Donalda this week for you at Just Magnolia Challenge. I have made another Christmas card (no surprise there then LOL) as here was me thinking I must have enough now as I've been making them since September only to count up and find I am still 16 short!! ah!!! I have used more stunning Webster's Pages for this card - I just can't get enough of these papers - so scrummy! I've sewn the edges and distressed them too.

I have wanted this image since she was first sold selectively last year and was thrilled to finally find her in the new Christmas release!! She's just so beautiful!! I've coloured her with copics and added stickles to her wings and glossy accents to the violin as if there's one thing about violins it is that they are always so highly polished and beautiful! Unfortunately the snowy weather we're having meant I couldn't get the glossy accents to show on the photo but it looks stunning in real life!
I have used the christmas tree on the papers as a panel behind the image for extra interest and the swirls are the doo hickey swirl die which I've cut up to add it in separate places.

I cut the holly leaves from a part of the paper that has sheet music on it, they are a sizzix die. The ribbon is from my stash and the gems are from Hero Arts.

Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at Just Magnolia! The rest of the team have created some stunning eye candy for you too! Hope you can pop and have a look! Thanks for looking! x
