It's the 2nd Monday of the month, so it's time for a new challenge at Swiss Stamping Pixies. The theme for our November challenge is: monochrome.
Here's my DT card...and yes, it's another advent calendar card. I have a few more to make of this, so I hope you won't get tired of seeing them.
A couple pictures of the card here from different angles.
This adorable Magnolia image I am featuring is of Tilda With A Cute Lamb.
This Tilda is from the Little Christmas Collection 2012. A very popular collection that a lot of the images are currently out of stock at Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store, where I get my wonderful Magnolia images. If you would like to purchase this Tilda, contact Diana and let her know. There is a vast selection other Magnolia images, both full-size and minis--check them out HERE.
Have a look also at the selection of the wonderful cutting dies from Memory Box, PoppyStamps, Magnolia, Marianne Design and Cheery Lynn Designs. Those exquisite swirls on my card ar from a Memory Box Whimsical Flourish die. Diana also gives fast excellent services and discounted prices and you get to earn in-store credit with each purchase--how sweet is that!
