Merry Christmas

I have another white-on-white Christmas card to show you. This was the theme at a couple of the challenge blogs, so I just had to play along.

When you think about it, white-on-white cards can be quick to do because you don't have to match designer papers--that's what usually takes me forever to do...LOL.

This is one of the adorable images from Magnolia's latest collection, Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection 2011. This one is called A Little Gift Tilda. Isn't she just too cute? She is available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store, a fabulous source of everything Magnolia (stamps--full-size and mini version, doohickey die cuts). You get excellent services there, along with discounts and store credits. Check it out HERE!

This is a mini easel card. I consider this a mini because it is only 4 1/2 inches in diameter. Lots of dies and layers and textures here.

Here's a list of the challenges that I am entering with this card:

Passion for Promarkers – Week 126 – White on white
Dutch Dare Card Challenges – DDCC #139 – All White
Totally Gorjuss – Challenge 107 – Swirly Whirly
Polka Doodles – Week 46 Challenge – Shaped Christmas Card
Everybody-Art-Challenge – Challenge 168 – Little Present
ABC DT Challenge for Novemver - Christmas Card
Flutter By Wednesday - Challenge #180 - Open Challenge
Paper Play Challenges - Week 46 - Shaped Card
