Magnolia-licious June Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop

Welcome to the sixth 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 Charlene's Blog.

My inspiration for my card came from the lovely sketch from CLP (Crafting Life's Pieces)...

 ...and here is my card...

Stamps:  Tilda With Christmas Tree (Magnolia), Snow Swirled (SU!)
Paper: Cranberry, Handsome Hunter, watercolor paper, designer paper from stash.
Ink: Staz-On Black, Distress Ink, Sahara Sand
Accessories:  Roses and lace from Wild Orchid, MS Branch Punch, Scallop Trim Border Punch (SU!), Flat Back Pearls, Spellbinders Labels Four, organza ribbon.




So, next in the blog hop, you will visit Charlene's Blog

Magnolia-licious is a great resource for Magnolia stamps! They have a great selection and great service.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great day!
