Magnolia 'Cuddly Siblings'

Hi everyone! If you celebrate Christmas I hope that you had a lovely time and that Santa was good to you :).

I have a card to show today with the Magnolia 'cuddly siblings' stamp from the new 'sweet crazy love' collection and aren't they the sweetest :)? It's another beautiful collection from Pauline and I can't wait to colour them all! 

Cuddly Siblings have been painted with distress inks and then cut out using a Sizzix die, mini cabinet card. I've also used the beautiful new papers from the collection, mini cloudy pink hearts and mini cloudy turquoise hearts, they're very pretty.All the layers have been faux stitched with a pink glitter gel pen, edged with vintage photo distress ink then glittered with stickles star dust glitter glue. I added lots of punched flowers which are punched from pink, white and blue glitter card with pearl pen centres and made some corner embellishments from clay which is highlighted with blue paint.

I'm entering my card into the Simon Says Stamp challenge of 'anything goes' and Dutch Dare Card Challenges with a theme of 'use your favourite things', well Tilda and Edwin, distress ink, glittery card, pearl pens, stickles and faux stitching are a few of my favourite things used on this card.

How adorable is this?!!! Your "coloring" always looks like an acrylic painted work of art! I love the layout and this pink and blue color scheme...so pretty. Is that a "mini" die? I have the regular size one but didn't know there's also a mini that I will have to get! Have a wonderful day!

Oh look at that beautiful coloring! I love the depth of shading you created here Chris. I wish I could color Edwin's hair like this - still trying to get that right. I just want to run my fingers through those curls ;)

Love the pastel colors you chose on your card too! hugs, Angela
