X is for Xmas at ABC Christmas

Hello and happy Wednesday!  You have all been very busy, there were so many beautiful cards for the Winter Wonderland challenge. It is time for another challenge on the ABC Christmas Challenge blog. This week it is Lacey's turn to host and she has chosen the theme X is for Xmas with the optional extra of flowers. This is an easy one to help you along and build up your stash. We want to see all of your gorgeous Christmas creations.

My new Christmas Magnolias arrived in the mail last week so of course I had to ink them up right away. I have masked the lovely Sitting Angel Tilda on the Peppermint candy cane. Isn't she just darling? She has been coloured with Copics and I have added a generous dose of Stickles and Glossy Accents to the candy cane to give it some sparkle and shine. I have used my distress inks to soften the background and added a few tiny snowflakes and some pearls for a little added touch.

For the card, I have again used paper from the Countdown to Christmas collection from MME, it is so sparkly and yummy that it is hard to resist. This has been layered with a doily from the dollar store, some spellbinders snowflakes and of course completed with some flowers from my stash.

Our challenge this time has been generously sponsered by Wild Orchid Crafts. As you can see from the photo below they have provided some gorgeous candy for one  randomly selected, lucky participant, it could be you.

Be sure to stop by the ABC Christmas Challenge blog, the design team has created some gorgeous Christmas creations to inspire you. Now what are you waiting for? Go get crafting!

This card will also be entered into the following challenges:

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Sparkle and Shine
Creative Inspirations Challenge - Christmas
Lili of the Valley Challenge - Anything Goes
Pollycraft Monday Challenge - Glittery Christmas
The Stamp Man Challenge - Christmas
