WE'RE BACK!! Magnolia-licious Challenge

Phew!  Doesn't it feel like we've been away for a long time?  How did you like how long you had for the last challenge?  hee hee
For this card I used 2 images from the Little Christmas collection "Dancing w/Stars" and "Little Tilda". I distressed many layers and added Stardust stickles to the edges. I see after I colored these that Diana doesn't have them in the store but if you're interested in them it's possible that she might bring them in. 

I used a Maya chipboard snowflake, covered it in Adirondack "Pearl" acrylic paint (dabber), let it dry and the add Liquid Accents and covered with Glitter Ritz "Warm Highlight" glitter.  Oooo so pretty especially in real life!! 

This is the inspiration photo from my great teamie Chris.  You can use a supporting color, and I've used a slight bit of green but still within the Copic "E" family and incorporating the browns, creams and greys.  Head on over to Magnolia-licious challenge blog to find some more gorgeous ideas.

And as usual Diana is offering a lovely gift package. 

Now I have a bit more information for you and then I'm done.  Long post today!!

2. Every order over $100.00 now receives a Magnolia Mini stamp.
