Christmas puppy

 
Hi everyone, hope you're having a nice evening. A Magnolia card to share today with the gorgeous Tilda with puppy and she's very sweet and a Tilda that can be used all year round which is lovely.

I've coloured with distress ink and watercolour markers and crayons and edged the image panel with gathered twigs distress ink which is my new favourite brown! I made an easel card and used a Tim Holtz baroque die for one of the layers under the image panel. The base card and mats are kraft card that I've stamped with a Magnolia Christmas song background stamp and sponged with DI. The patterned paper is Magnolia and all the edges have been distressed before adding it to the card. I've made a panel using the merry christmas sentiment as the easel stopper and this has been punched with an inverted corner punch to give a book place effect.
To decorate I've added lots of Magnolia DooHickey die cuts, star dust stickles glitter glue, paper flowers, faux stitching, doodling, pearl pen dots, seam binding ribbon and glitted die cut stars.

I'm entering my card into the Magnolia-licious challenge which is to 'add stickles or glitter', Cute Card Thursday's challenge of Starry, Starry night, Midweek Magnolia's challenge of 'oh Christmas tree', Marvellous Magnolia's challenge of 'traditional Christmas colours' and Tilda's Town's challenge of 'anything goes'.

Another stunning creation, Chris. A beautiful scene card. Tilda looks a little poppet in her pretty dress and spotted tights. Such a cute pup, too. And I love your embellishing :) x
