Edwin with Sack Meets Midwinter Tilda!

Hello Dearest Readers,

Hello from a chilly southern Utah, and thank you for stopping by!! The mountains around our valley are snow capped. Fall is battling Winter!

Are you ready for a new challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog? Eulanda has given us the most wonderful color challenge. It is to use red, white, gold, and silver! Here is the photo that she gave us to help get some color inspiration:

Isn't that a gorgeous photo? Look at those colors! Here is the card I created after viewing the photo:

I chose to use two Magnolia stamps - Edwin with Sack from the 2012 Christmas Story Collection and Midwinter Tilda from the 2011 Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection. I thought they made a great pair since they both held lanterns. I added some Puffy Paint to Edwin's outfit. The lanterns have glitter on the glass panels. The card is in red and silver with lots of glittered cardstock embellishments. I chose to make little poinsettias using my Marianne Design dies. The fir sprig is a Cheery Lynn Die. The Holly sprig is also Cheery Lynn. There is a hidden tag behind the mat where the bow is. I also made the Merry Christmas embellishment to go with the silver color scheme.

Here are the two interior panels with the top first:

I chose to repeat the silver by making the poinsettias with glittered cardstock. The adorable tag is a Cottage Cutz die. I got mine at Happy Scrappin' Scrapbooking. Sharon, the owner, does ship internationally. The best thing is that she mails the very next day!

Here is the bottom interior panel:

I used the Memory Box Frostyville Wreath as the centerpiece on the bottom. I had sentiment peel offs in my stash and thought it would look nicely in the center of the wreath. You likey?
