Magnolia Meets Copics Unusual Xmas Card

Good afternoon everyone.

I have completed my last Xmas card for this year.  I decided to use the Just Magnolia Challenge Sketch, to encourage me to do something different.  I also decided to try fit this with the Magnolia Down Under Challenge - Stamp with another use (Incorrect Stamp for the portayal of the image.  Also to enter the Lots To Do challenge - Free Theme, and finally The Stamp Something Challenge - Holiday Somethings.  I think that this is a record for me and how lovely to end the year with this.

Here it is (I am sure that if I had used floral papers it would make a lovely birthday card, the image is more of a summer one to me, good job the punch adds a little more winter)

Here it is anyway



Lovely vivid pink bottom layered with K & Co upper layers, cuttlebug used for the oval, justrite for the sentiment, ribbon, charm and flowers from stash.  Used Atyou clear glitter pen to add sparkle to the dress and shoes and saved the stars from the border punch to add to the side of the image.  Various copics used in pink, greens, skin tones and browns. Glittered up with stickles.

Close up of the flowers



and the justrite sentiment




and finally the copic coloured image





Well I am going to get my bags ready for work and place the works xmas presents in the sack ready to take to work tomorrow.

Thanks for looking and your lovely comments.
