Another Christmas Card!!!!

 Hi

Well, it's December tomorrow, Christmas is not far away and I've done no shopping - do you think I need to panic ?!!!

I have found the time to make another Christmas card though:



It fits into the following six challenges:

Cupcake Craft Challenges - Red & Green
Stamp With Fun - Xmas
Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential - Hats On
The Pink Elephant - Favourite Colouring Medium
The Corrosive Challenge Blog - Red & Green
Magnolia Down Under Challenge - Christmas Decoration / card

I used this beautiful Magnolia stamp, which I bought when I visited the NEC a few weeks back.  I stamped her using black Memento Ink and coloured her using my Copics, which are my most favourite colouring medium by far!!!  I then used some Distress Ink to soften the harsh white background slightly.




Recipe:

Stamp: Magnolia Tilda with Gift
Ink: Black Memento Ink Pad.  "Old Paper" Ranger Distress Ink
Colouring Medium: Copic Ciao & Sketch Markers
Papers: Red Gingham Paper - Cuddly Buddly.  Parcel Paper - Magnolia.  Tree Paper - Basic Grey.  Red & green card from my stash
Tools: Large circle & large scalloped circle Nesties.  Ellison Big Shot
Embellishments: Poinsettias from The Hobby House.  Red ribbons from my stash.



Thanks for stopping by today.
Hope you like it.

Hugs
