New Challenge at Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia

Hi everyone,

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

I am sharing my card for the new challenge at Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia. Our challenge for the next four weeks is:

Use Trim
(ribbon, pearl trim, seam binding, lace, twine, organza roses, pom pom trim etc) 

I have coloured up an older Maggie called Tilda in Christmas Coat. The trees in the background I drew myself. I am hoping to do more freehand backgrounds. I don't think it is too bad for a first attempt.  The only trouble is it takes me quite a long time so I won't be able to do it on all of my cards until I get better and faster at it.

The frozen border die cut on the left hand side has been cut from a Jeanine's die twice and mounted on top of each other. I only placed the glue along the bottom edge so it can be opened up to give some dimension. Sitting underneath the image along the bottom is a Joy Crafts die 'Icicles Edge'.

The pearl trim, pom pom trim, lace and ribbon are from the Ribbon Girl.

The rhinestone sparkler in the centre of the bow is very similar to the silver glitter flatbacks at the Ribbon Girl.

DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Gathered Twigs, Walnut Stain
Coat and Boots: Hickory Smoke, Black Soot
Present and Tights: Weathered Wood

The trees have been coloured with a mixture of watercolour paints and DI reinkers
burnt umber watercolour paint and walnut stain distress reinker.

Our fabulous sponsor is
The Rubber Buggy

We would love for you to share your creations with us.

That's all for now.
