New Challenge Marvelous Magnolia - Anything Goes

Hi everyone,

I hope your week is off to a good start, well I am back at work now, following my week off, it was such a lovely week, which flew by far too quickly.

Anyway we have a new challenge at Marvelous Magnolia starting today and our theme is the ever popular 'Anything Goes'.

This is Christmas Candle Tilda masked with Old Swedish Church, I think this is my favourite background stamp. 

I have used two Joy dies which are mounted underneath the paper, links can be found at the bottom of this post. On the left hand side I have placed a couple of vintage straws and mounted a lantern chipboard piece which has been painted with white gesso on top of the straws. I've tied a bow out of twine and placed a silver wreath charm on top.

The ice crystal is also a Joy die, which I have covered with twinklets and popped a pearl into the centre. The fir cones have been painted with white gesso and the roses have also had twinklets added to them.

The pleated tulle, organza ribbon and pearl and diamante embellishment are from my stash.

DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Walnut Stain
Coat, Hat and Boots: Hickory Smoke
Candle: Old Paper Forest Moss, Shabby Shutters, Mustard Seed, Wild Honey
Church: Hickory Smoke, Mustard Seed

Our wonderful sponsor for this challenge is:

Timbro Scrap Mania

and the winner will also be a GDT for an upcoming challenge.

Well that's it from me today.

Thank you for popping in and for the lovely comments you leave me, they are really appreciated.

Take care.
