Sending Warm Thoughts - Sweet Stamping Pixies Challenge #11

Hello.  Happy Monday!

Seeing that today's is the 2nd Monday of the month, it's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stamping Pixies Challenge Blog--and it's our first one of the year.  The theme for the challenges is:  Snowflakes.  This is the card that I came up with...


I hope you'll be able to play along with us.  To get more details on the challenge, please hop over to the Sweet Stamping Pixies Challenge Blog and also have a look at the fabulous card of my DT teammates for inspirations.  

This card is full of glitter.  I don't know if you can see that even if you blow up the picture.  I've covered all the white snow and snowflakes with glitter--and in the process covered myself as well..LOL.

I've turned this into an easel card...


 
To create the snowy winter scene, I've used 3 Magnolia images.  The adorable Tilda with Snow Heart is from the Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection 2011.  The Winter Fence and Winter Forest are both from the Santa Collection 2008.  I've done the colouring using my Letraset Promarker and Pantone Tria markers.


Magnolia stamps are available from Diana's on-line store, Magnolia-licious. If you don't see the one you are looking for in the store, contact Diana and ask her if she can bring it in for you.
Check out the latest stamp collection With Love Collection 2013. The images are oh so cute and they have been coloured by the Magnolia-licious DT gals so you can see what they can look like. Have a look also at the selection of cutting dies from Magnolia, Memory Box, PoppyStamps, Marianne Design, Cheery Lynn Designs and Joy! Crafts. Diana offers discounted prices, gives excellent service and you get to earn 2% in-store credit with every purchase!
