Simon Says Stamps Challenge DT - Christmas no red or green!

Woohoo! time for another challenge at Simon Says Stamps Challenge with a chance to win another fabulous doubled up prize of a $50 spending spree in the Simon Says Stamp store!!! This week we'd like to see Christmas cards without any red or green on them! My new Magnolia papers came in pretty handy for this one! Just love this gorgeous bauble paper!

I've stitched the edges and distressed them too before adding stickles.

It is hard to decide upon a favourite stamp from this year's Christmas collection from Magnolia but I think this is very high up on the list!! Love all her tumbling hair! I've coloured her with copics and added stickles to the star before covering the entire mat in glossy accents so that it represents a bauble!

I cut fancy tags from silver cardstock to act as the tops of the baubles and added some pink paper ribbon from my stash for the hanging loops. The sentiment is from Magnolia too, stamped with victorian velvet distress ink and again covered in glossy accents to represent a bauble. A simple white bow and some gems from my stash complete the card!

Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at Simon Says Stamps challenge! The rest of the team have made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration too! Thanks for looking! x

Hi Jane - hope you're all well. Not posted recently but I always have a look at what you've created and it's always fab. This little Magnolia image is so cute, but the cutest thing I've seen recently was your two playing in the snow. Ear to ear smiles! xxx
