Wishing you a very Merry Christmas

Happy Monday to you all I hope you had a nice weekend.....My card today is for the Magnolia-licious Group they have a new challenge blog where the first challenge is a color and yellow this is not a combo I usually use so this took me out of my comfort zone a little but I am happy with the end result.  I combined it with the Magnolia-lcious Highlites Nov. Monthly challenge where we were to make a shaker card.  I cut my card and all the layers with on my wishblade,  ran the base through the cuttlebug, "Snowflakes" embossing folder then went over the embossing with a light pink chalk.  The next layer raised for dimension a with the acetate shaker box in-between.   The DP is Basic Grey from the Porcelain collection 6x6 pad.  I have used the new little mini  "Tilda in the winter night" she is colored with copics and I have added fun flock to her coat, glossy accents to her shoes and stickles for the lantern. The little snowflakes are from my stash.
For the inside of my card I have used 2 of the Pine Trees colored with copics with puff paint and stickles for dimension.   Another little mini "Starlight Tilda" from the winter collection, perched on the snowy hill colored with copics with stickles on her wings and star.  I chalked my card base in blue, and then added puff paint for the snow edge and then filled in with fun flock.  My sentiment is from a little dollar bin clear stamp.  All of the stamps I used can be purchased here from Diana.  I hope you enjoyed my little card as I had so much fun putting this together.

Beautiful and cozy card Charlene. Love the chalky looking pinkish background setting but yet with a wintery scenery. Very sweet and live those punched borders too. The inside is just as gorgeous :o)

Oh Charlene!
What a wonderful card! Your Tilda's have been coloured wonderfully. I love that you combined the two challenges into one! You did a great job using the pink and yellow combo you weren't comfortable with :o)
Your WishBlade must be an awesome gadget to cut such a great design.
