Magnolia Christmas

Oops, it’s my last GDT week with Sketch Saturday and I forgot to post my card. Too much to do and not enough time to do it in is my excuse.
My card today is very similar to one I posted a few weeks ago. I had to replace it as Royal Mail as decided to lose a recorded delivery item (3 so far that they have lost of mine since the first snows in mid November). No impressed at all!!! I have used Secret Tilda which I have coloured with Promarkers – Cool Grey 1,2,3,4,5 and Cardinal red, Lipstick Red and Satin for the highlights.
Fortunately I still had a little of this grey paper left to get a second card made. Let’s hope RM don’t lose this one.
The papers are Craft Creations, the stars are a chipboard die cut with a Sizzix die and coated in German Glass Glitter (adhered with Glossy Accents) and the gorgeous organza dotty ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl.
The flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts25mm wild rose, cherry blossoms, 4mm rose buds and the new larger rose buds that are going on sale in January.
The sentiment is from a Paula Pasqual set. The giant snowflake behind the image is a Sizzix Bigz die.
And the new challenge is up on Kenny K Krafty Girlz blog, it's the last one for this year so pop across to see the fab creations by Team B.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, hope you’re not struggling with to much snow (we had a light covering last night, hope that’s our lot lol)

  41. Gorgeous card as ever! Love all the greys and reds, WOW cool colouring :).

    Post is late with everything, due to strikes at TNT in the Netherlands, mail is desperately late or lost or whatever. There is no excuse to lose mail: we paid for postage so they have to keep there promise to deliver it!
    Anyway hope they find your missing cards asap and deliver them.
    Snow is covering our country and traffic is chaos!
    Warm wishes, Yolanda
