Super Sunday!.............


How are you today, well I hope?
The clocks went back last night so an extra hour today :) 
I would like to share with you one of the cards I made for Simon Says Stamp blog. Thank you again for inviting to feature me, and my Magnolia cards. I was thrilled to be invited and to join you!

I have coloured Magnolia's sweet Tilda with distress ink pads. I have stamped Magnolia's Mistletoe stamp around the edges and added platinum stickle glue.
The Swirl, Doily, Heart Tag, Lace Border, Mistletoe and Snowflakes are Magnolia Doohickey Dies.
The paper is Magnolia and I have painted over this with Picket Fence Distress Stain and when dry I have added a shimmer with perfect pearls.
Sentiment Magnolia.

To give the snowflakes more sparkle and depth. I first applied glossy accents and then sprinkled this with very fine glitter. Dries so quickly ready to use on your projects. It is so super sprinkly spronkly too!

Here you can see better the distress stain and how it softens the paper and the shimmer around the edge.

Thank you so much for visiting with me!
I hope you all have a great week ahead!
