I hope you are all well and having a great Saturday.

Today I have a Christmas card that I have made using the Magnolia So Jolly under the Mistletoe collection. I have coloured my image with distress ink pads and masked Tilda onto a table. I have used clears dry glue and sprinkled fine glitter onto this to get extra sprinkly spronkly on Tilda's fluffy trim. The background is distressed with tattered rose and I have die cut my shapes with nesties. I have added liquid pearls onto the scalloped circle.

I have glimmer misted my flowers and added stickle glue. I distressed the edges of my papers with Tim's distressing tool and distressed the edge with vintage photo and added gold stickle glue.

I wish you all a fabulous weekend and thank you so much for looking!
