Off to find the tree

Hi everyone, another Magnolia card to share today featuring 'Tilda in the forest' from the Christmas Story collection and I imagine her going off to find her Christmas tree :). Tilda is coloured with distress and watercolour markers and then cut out.

I've used a Memory Box three die cut in two ways for this card, the die cut pieces on the background glued down over some bazzil card and embellished with white acrylic paint and stickles and then on the tag I've used the waste as a stencil where I've sponged through Dusty Concorde distress ink over the top of the Silent Night stamped background stamping..

I've added Magnolia DooHickey snowflake, flowers, sparkly gems, a wooden snowflake and lots of silver pearl pen dots and white pen dots for snow. I attached the tag to the card with some dimension tape over the background and some seam binding ribbon and then added the chit chat sticker to finish off.

I'm entering my card into the Marvellous Magnolia challenge where theme this week is to use 2 or more Magnolia stamps and I've used Tilda and the Silent Night background.

Thanks as always for your lovely comments and over the Christmas break when I have time off work I hope to get to do some blog hopping and catch up with everyone.

Another gorgeous creation. That is my family. Each year, we go up in the mountains and cut down our tree. One of the joys of living in Colorado.
