Wish upon a Star....

Hello,

I hope you are all well and have enjoyed all the new year festivities. I would like to wish you all a very Happy New Year! I am shocked at how quickly we are into another year, time is sure whizzing by!


For my card to start the new year off. I have stamped my sweet Magnolia Tilda with versafine black onyx onto Waterford 300gsm hp watercolour paper. I have used distress ink pads for my colouring. The sprinkly spronkly is stickles star dust.

The ovals are die cut using nesties and the swirls and lace border are die cut using Magnolia's Doohickeys. I have distressed everything with walnut stain. I have used rub-ons for the lettering on the Magnolia tag.


Thank you so very much for your visit and for all your wonderful support of me. I really appreciate it and thank you from the bottom of my  heart! Have a great week!

love
kim x
