Roses On Paper # 24 - A Christmas Card


Hi Peeps!

Just a quick post from me tonight to show you my entry for this week's Roses On Paper Challenge...... you're allowed to use a Magnolia image so I chose this beautiful Tilda from last year's Winter collection. The theme is to make a Christmas card so now I've ticked another one off my list!

I think the papers are Bo Bunny and my Tilda has been coloured with Polys and Koh pencils..... I added some stickles to the fur on her coat and some little flat-backed gems as coat buttons. Around the image I've used a Tapestry Peg stamp set to add pine cones and branches. The zigzag stitching has been stamped and both the holly leaves and snowflakes are dies. The larger red flowers are Prima and the mini white roses in the middle are from my stash.

I'm trying desperately hard to catch up with everyone's blogs since the weekend but don't seem to be getting very far, so I promise I'll try to get round later for a bit more of a catch up! Phew! There are so many amazing bloggers out there and never enough hours in the day...... can you all stop being so flippin' creative please, lol?!

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx

I must be loosing my mind. As much as I love Magnolias and I missed this card!Your coloring is so gorgeous on this image. I love to see someone else using my faves colored pencils! instead of copics.
I love the white snowflakes with the red flowers.
Watch for me to case that!
I love this card!
HUgs,
