Magnolia-Licious Christmas All Year Hop

Good morning, if you are looking for my ABC Christmas post please click here.


It is May 25th and that means that it is time for the Magnolia-Licious Christmas all Year Long Blog Hop.
If you have made your way here from Angelique's blog then you are on the right track. If not, you will want to pop back there as she is the first stop along the way.
If you lose your way pop back to the Magnolia Christmas All Year Long Blog for a full list of participants.



For my card today, I have used Sitting Angel Tilda and coloured her with copics in soft pastel shades of pink and purple and added some stickles for sparkle on the wings and around the edge of the image.

I wanted to make a sweet and girly card. The DP is a remnant from years gone by that I found in my scraps. I have used a lace doily for a feminine touch and added lots of flowers from Wild Orchid and Michael's. To boost the sparkle factor, I have used a Magnolia swirl that I cut from silver glitter paper and if you look close, you will also see a silver leaf that I cut from a Christmas pick and tucked behind the flowers.

I want to thank you for stopping by today. Before you leave, I hope that you will leave a little comment to let me know that you were here. Now it is off to your next stop on the hop Cordine who I am sure will have something gorgeous to share with you.
Hugs!
