Just Magnolia Challenge

Finally, I got one done. I made this card for the Just Magnolia Challenge. They put up a new challenge each Friday. This is my very first time entering. The challenge was to make a card, anything Christmassy.

I decided to use Tilda with a Glitter Halo. She is sitting inside the oval cut with a nestie which is inside the square scalloped nestie. The card base is cardstock by Bazzill. All other paper is from Magnolia's Christmas line. I colored Tilda with Copics and then used some antique linen Stickles on the wings and halo. The center strip is a stamp from Hampton Art with Twas the Night Before Christmas saying. I inked all the edges with Old Paper Distress Ink. I added a bow, flowers, brads, and some rhinestones to bling it up a little. Oh, I also gold embossed some of the edges. I then made and envelope out of Magnolia paper. I had to use two different sheets to get it big enough to fit a 6 X 6 card.

Here is a list of the copics I used:
Skin: E0000, 000, 11, & R20 on cheeks.
Hair: E51, 55, 57, 59.
Dress and socks: R27, 39, 46
Shirt and socks: G85, BG96, 99.
Colorless Blender.

Thanks for stopping by.
