Warm Holiday Wishes

It's the 25th of May and it's time for another card for our Christmas All Year Long Group of the Magnolia-licious Yahoo Group. This is also our monthly Christmas Blog Hop. You can find a list of the participants at the Christmas Group's blog here. The hop starts from Julie's blog. Julie organizes our group--thanks, Julie. If you're following the blog hop, you would have come here after visiting Monique.

Here is my card.

I love this adorable image from Magnolia's So Jolly Collection 2009. She is called Silent Night Tilda.

I have used this sketch of Jane's that she has created for this week's challenge at Just Magnolia. I've rotated the sketch by 90 degrees.

Other challenges:
Charisma Cardz Challenge #20 - their theme is 3D.
Creative Inspirations Challenge #34 - punches or die cuts.
Susie & Vikki's Christmas Christmas Club Challenge 18 - Anything Christmas.

I've made this into an easel card. The Tilda that you see in front is cut out and mounted on foam tape. You can see this better from the angle in the picture below if you blow it up.

To go with the sentiment 'Warm Holiday Wishes'...hee hee...I've hung a pair of mittens on one of the snowflakes.

I've added gold glitter to the ribbons. Crystal or clear glitter I've added to the snowflakes and swirls in the background.
That's it! To continue on with the blog hop, your next visit is at Patricia's. Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful day!

Stamp: Magnolia Silent Night Tilda, Inkadinkadoo Holiday stamp set Snowflake Trails.

DP's: Chatterbox Guest Plaid, Provo Craft Gingerbread Check, self-made DP with watercolour wash sprinkled with salt.

Tools: Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Four, Martha Stewart snowflake punches.

Embelishments: Vintage Attic Treasures pearls, Karen Foster Design mini charms Wintertime.
