Just Magnolia Challenge #16 Distressing/ Magnolia Down Under Challenge #19 Winter is Here



I managed to finish a card for 2 Challenges. Magnolia Down Under this week had a challenge for Winter is Here. Well that was right up my alley let me tell you!!. I immediately thought of using my new Cosmo Cricket paper, Jolly by Golly: Smitten Mitten. The colors on this paper are stunning. I colored my little Tilda to match the hats on the paper. I glittered her tassle, and added 2 little pink button brads to the straps on her dress. I punched out little snowflakes and covered them in glitter to brighten them up. Then for the Just Magnolia Challenge it was to distress. That's when I distressed the Nestability Punch Out that I sat Tilda on, and also distressed the one in the middle to match. On the middle of the card I added more glittered snowflakes, and a sugar coated brad to hold 2 of the mittens I cut out from the paper. I stamped my new sentiment from Stamping Bella in the middle, Warm Hugs. My final added touch was to add a pretty pink ribbon to close the card with. I hope you like it.
