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: #64 - with Crafty Emma's Store #94 - Christmas #46 - Snowflakes Let it Snow Christmas Crackers - but not literally! #169 - Christmas Card Red & White Challenge #134 Pink White & Red

Many thanks for stopping by. I love to read your comments, so please leave me one to let me know you've been and I can visit you too.

Enjoy the rest of your day. Bye for now.
