Light a Penny Candle

Hello again, I have a second card to share with you today, stamped with my Magnolia Tilda with Cross-stitch Heart. I love this stamp and it is one of my all time Magnolia favourites!


I coloured her with my usual Pro-Markers and distressed the edge of the image with a Stempelglede grunge flourish heart. I did a border all around my card with Martha Stewarts Aspen Snowflakes PATP, which I distressed. My papers and card were from my stash and so was my ribbon.


I used my Marianne Doily Die behind the image and an old Woodware punch for the snowflake that I punched out of holographic card. Then I added a Prima Say it in Pearls embellishment, bought from Quixotic Paperie, to the centre of the snowflake.


Finally, I added a Magnolia sentiment, added some crystals and glittered Tildas heart & candlelight.


I'm entering this into the following challenges:
