New year, new month, NEW CHALLENGE!!

Hi de ho, neighbors!! (Yes, too much Home Improvement on TVLand!)!  It's a new month, a new year, and a NEW CHALLENGE over at MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS HIGHLITES!  It was my turn to pose the challenge, so I went with my favorite, which is ANYTHING GOES!  You can also add the option of lace!  I added a lacy doily to my card!

 I had this card every which way, but right!! I colored the image and tried it on brown, with dp, on a 5.5x5.5 card  base.  Nothing was right!  I finally kept it simple (my usual style!) and just mounted the white panel on a Purely Pomegranate base. It's all about the main image, which is cute,cute, cute!!
It's #3053 TILDA WITH PEONY TAILS!  No kidding, that's the title from Sweden-I don't know if it's a take on Pony tails, or what!  Anyway, of course, mine came from the best store for Magnolias!- MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS owned and run by Diana Crick (and family!)
Here she is in close up!  I love the huge peony she is holding!!  I colored it in RV04, RV17 and RV19 with some RV!) for color blending.  Tilda's hair and boots are E34, E55 and E47.  Her dress is RV10 and R81 and 83.  The greens are YG23, and 25 then some YG95.
I used one of the many glittery snowflakes that I bought in the ornament section of Walmart this year, (held on perfectly with wonderful SCOR-TAPE!) so I hope you can see some of the sparkle in my photos. The ribbon is from PTI as is the white 'grid' behind her.  I've seen so much white on white this year that it was a goal of mine to try it!
Thanks for coming and PLEASE join in on our ANYTHING GOES challenge!  You have all month!
And, once again, wishes for a year full of health, happiness and all good things!

This is so pretty! I love those Tildas and wanted to use one today, but I didn't have a wintery one to go on my project! Have to go shopping soon! Love the white on white, especially with that PTI die! Lovely and I may just join in this challenge this month!
