To The North Pole.......

Hiya folks!

When I saw the latest sketch over at Just Magnolia I knew I wanted to play along, so this card is the result of that. The DT produced some gorgeous samples and it was fun to play along! I hope you can still spot the original layout because I have added lots of layers and slanted some a little...... oh and I flipped the sketch from left to right too!

I used this gorgeous new Tilda carrying a Christmas tree (boy that girl must be strong, lol) from the latest Magnolia collection and one of the older Christmas scenes for a background. I think she went right over to the North Pole to collect her tree you know...... well alright but just humour me will you, hee hee! Because I do love Christmas sooooooooo much!!!

As you can hopefully pick up from this picture, I have glittered and sparkled the image as much as possible!! And I also added some liquid pearl snow dots to the mix.

The papers are Webster's Pages and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts...... and those yummy berries were picked up last year from Tesco's Christmas section!!!

I'd also like to enter the following challenges:

WOC - Classic Christmas

Sir Stampalot - Christmas Traditions

Stampartic - Glitter

Colour Throwdown - Riding Hood Red, Vanilla, Certainly Celery

ASFOS - Relish To Embellish

Thanks so much for stopping by today ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
