Tilda is in the pink .............

Here is a Christmas card in a non-traditional colour  - yes, it's salmon pink!  I've coloured the Magnolia Tilda in with pink copics and used loads of stickles to make her glitter.  I've gone to town on this card and even stitched around the image and frame!

I didn't need any excuse to get out my brand new Magnolia heart branch die to enhance my flower arrangement (small rose and some white pretty blossoms), and even managed to squeeze on a gorgeous snowflake cut with my new Magnolia die (I got a mistletoe branch and the snowflake in one pack - it'll be beans on toast for the rest of the month lol!!)  The background paper looks like sheet music, but toned in with everything.

I used 38mm white guipure lace and pink twill stripe ribbon to finish the card, plus some self adhesive clear sparklies and a light spraying of irridescent glitter from Crafters Companion  - looks even better in real life!  I popped one clear gem into the middle of the delicate snowflake, it really is very pretty and I can see it will be used lots.
Guipure lace, twill ribbon, pretty blossoms all from Ribbon Girl

I will enter this card into the Just Magnolia challenge which is to use pink - I think this fits the bill!! Also into A Gem of a Challenge .
