Magnolia Down Under Challenge DT - Get Punchy

Woohoo!! It is time for another challenge at Magnolia Down Under Challenges and this week our theme is "get punchy" - so grab your punches and join us!! I've been so excited to share this card which I made at the weekend after receiving my new Sweet Christmas Dreams stamps!! - even the background stamp is new to me - don't know how that slipped in my basket with the new collection :0!! LOL I have wanted that stamp forever and decided I couldn't resist any longer!

OMG I adore this new Tilda! I think it is probably because Kara has a hat like that! I have coloured her with copics and added some snow writer pen to the bobbles on her hat.

I have coloured the background scene with copics too and added stickles here and there to the areas covered in snow and some gold stickles to the star.

I added a poinsettia from my stash along with some holly leaves cut with a sizzix die and some mistletoe cut with a doohickey die. I added some snow to the poinsettia too.

I created a snow drift in front of the scene by tearing a little scrap of snowflake vellum by Papermania, available from The Hobby House. The fence was cut with a doohickey and I've added some snow to the fence posts along with some tiny pompoms that were begging to be added as snowballs!

I used the gorgeous Tim Holtz' snow flurries on the edge die along both edges and added some sparkly punched snowflakes here and there to fit the challenge.

Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at Magnolia Down Under Challenge! Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's gorgeous punchy creations! Thanks for looking! x
