Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop - March

Welcome to the third installment of our monthly Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop. This group was created for Magnolia lovers who want to get a jump on the Christmas season by creating a Christmas card each month. If you are visiting this blog hop, I hope it will inspire you to get ahead of the holiday season and join us in our endeavor.

The blog hop will start at Christmas All Year Long Magnolia-licious Yahoo Group. If you get lost, the list of all players will appear on that blog. From here, you will go to Angela Wood's Blog.

My inspiration for my card came from the Sketch Saturday Challenge #95. Here is their sketch...

...and here is my Christmas Card.


Stamp: Tilda With Candle
Paper: Baroque Burgundy, Daisy D's, Bazzill.
Ink: Staz-On, Distress Ink
Accessories: Glitter glue (candle flame), MS Lattice punch, stitched ribbon (SU! retired), roses from Michaels bridal section, half pearls.


I love this beautiful Tilda. She is so much fun to water color with the distress inks. I added some glitter glue to her flame to make it sparkle.

So, next in the blog hop, you will visit Angela Wood's blog.

Magnolia-licious is a great resource for Magnolia stamps! They have a great selection and great service. Go check out the store here.

Have a great day!
