Be Merry 3-Step Card - Magnolia-licious "W"ednesday Post #99

Hello!

Happy Wednesday!  It's that day of the week that the DT gals take turns showcasing stamps from other companies (besides Magnolia Stamps) that Magnolia-licious store carries.  Stamps from Wee StampsWild Rose StudiosCandibeansSaturated CanaryCrafter's Companion and a few other companies. Check out the complete selection HERE.  Today it's Suzi's and my turns to participate.

Here's the card that I came up with.



I've made the inside of my card to showcase a 3-Step Card. 


If you're interested in the template for this 3-Step Card, you can find it HERE.

A close-up of the delightful image being featured.


She is called Uptown Girl Savannah, a Stamping Bella image, coloured with alcohol-ink markers and coloured pencils.  I've added liquid pearls to the beaded garland and ornaments.

The stamp for this image is available from Magnolia-licious.  You can see the Stamping Bella collection HERE.
