Magnolia Down Under Challenge DT - Christmas in May

Woohoo!! Time for another challenge at Magnolia Down Under Challenge and this week our theme is Christmas in May! A great excuse to dust off last year's Christmas stamps and make a start on the huge pile of this year's Christmas cards! For me it was also a great excuse to get out the scrummy Webster's pages too!

I coloured Tilda with copics and added stickles on her Santa hat. Don't you just love how she's giggling - perhaps because she's seen Santa in his sleigh above her!

I can never decide whether to go for poinsettias or snowflakes on Christmas cards so went for both on this one LOL as well as a bow and jingle bell - well, you can't go too over the top on a Christmas card can you LOL!? The snowflake was cut with Whiff of Joy's snowflake die. The bell came from an Easter bunny of a certain make and the large poinsettia is by Prima.

I cut along the edges of the lamp on the Webster's Pages paper so that I could thread the ribbon and doohickey lace behind it. The snowflake was again cut with the Whiff of Joy snowflake die and I have added stickles and gems.

I have sprayed the whole card with gold cosmic shimmer - it gives such a gorgeous look to Tilda.

Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at Magnolia Down Under Challenges this week. Pop over to the challenge blog to see the stunning inspiration from the rest of the team! Thanks for looking! x
