We wish you a Merry Christmas

Hello!  I have another Christmas card I want to show you today!  I'm so happy with how this turned out!  How will I ever send it?!  At least I get to look at it for a few weeks first!  The image is #3101 TILDA WITH SNOW HEART from Magnolia-licous!  It's a great store for all things Magnolia, great customer service and a frequent buyer program!!  I's sorry she's not in stock right now, but the mini image is!

 I used a card base of PTI's burgundy, then a layer of River Rock (SU!), then a layer of True Thyme (SU! retired-love that color!) and some gorgeous Simple Stories Papers called Generations,  see below for blog candy!!.  I don't think the papers are intended as Christmas, but that's what I saw in the muted darker colors with a pink rose in some of them.
 And all that seam binding?  It's actually a bow and 'pull' for the tag that goes behind the image. I've seen this on a number of blogs and love the idea.  Haven't done one for awhile. TIP: If you raise the side of your image on dimensionals the tag slides behind more easily! Just be careful not to glue/tape where you want the tag to go!
 My image is colored with copics alone!  The face is E000, R30 and E11.  The 'yellows' are Y21, YR12, YR21 and YR24.  I added some E99 to her boots to make them a touch darker.  The 'reds' are R22. R05. R37 and R89.  Of course, there are stickles added to the snow and to her sweet outfit!!
I used flowers from my stash which definitely needs to be replenished soon!  And the Martha Stewart fern punch because it looks a bit like pine boughs!
BLOG CANDY ALERT!!
I hope you like my entry today!  I bought some extra packs of Simple Stories Generations( 6X 6 pad) and would love to give one away and maybe a stamp or two!  Please leave me a comment to be entered and I will choose a winner with Random.org on Friday, November 11 in celebration of Veteran's Day as we appreciate all those who have served this great country!! Will ship anywhere!!  If you'd card to become a follower (and you aren't already) I'd love that too, but it's not required!  Just remember to check back in on Saturday to see if you've won, please!

I'm entering my card in the Just Magnolia challenge-Anything goes with the option of pearls and lace! (I got the lace in!)
Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!! Make it a great day!
Hugs, Cheryl

The card should be framed. You have a great eye for detail. I appreciate you listed the copics you used. Love your blog too. Debbi. debbi_97023@yahoo.com

I love all your cards but I agree with the lady above that this one needs framed. Everything about it is beautiful! I really like the shade of yellow you used with the Red.
