Ribbon Girls DT - Magnolia Only - Christmas/Winter

 Wow!  I really can't believe it is time for our Magnolia Only challenge over at the Ribbon Girl!  It's always like a little marker for me that it is time to make next month's projects!  It also means that Christmas is getting very, very close and this year I am so far behind in preparations!  I could do with an extra month lol.  My card shape today is a bit of an experiment to try to recreate a card blank I saw in a store a few weeks ago and I'm pleased to say it turned out exactly how I hoped first time!  The base is a soft gold pearlescent cardstock - so beautiful!
 I have used the new super cute Day Before Christmas Edwin #136 and coloured him with copics.  I've added gold gel pen to the twinkling lights, stickles to the baubles and white gel pen dots to his cheeks and eyes.  I've inked around him with Weathered Wood Distress Ink.
 The gorgeous glitter ribbon, bells and button twine are all from the Ribbon Girl.
 All of the flowers and berries are from the Ribbon Girl too.  I've sprayed all of the flowers with some gold Perfect Pearls mist.  The holly leaves were cut with the Tim Holtz Festive Garland die.
 The flowers to the left of the image are also from The Ribbon Girl.
 I've used the gorgeous Tim Holtz Doily On The Edge die for the sides of the card and a Tim Holtz ticket sprinkled with Shabby White Frantage.  The gorgeous lace is form The Ribbon Girl too.
 On the other side I've used another Tim Holtz ticket.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at the Ribbon Girls.  Pop over to the blog to see the details of our fabulous prize and the rest of the team's stunning creations.  Thanks for looking! x
