Magnolia-licious Highlites November Challenge...

Woohoo! I have another card made! This one is for the Magnolia-licious Highlites November challenge, which is a sketch. Since I had these papers already out on my table, and I just love this Christmas ornament paper, I decided to use it up. The sketch is by Kerry Donovan-Casey, such a talented gal and I just love it.

Although you can't really see it the panel holding the flowers and sentiment is wrapped in ribbon to be like a present. I repeated that theme on the inside of the card.



The circular sentiment is from Magnolia Sweden. The gold organdy ribbon was purchased online while the gingham is from Hobby Lobby. The flowers are from the wedding section at Michaels, the leaves are the Martha Stewart Branch punch and sprayed with glimmer mist.



Here is a close up of Dinner Tilda from the A Little Yummy for your Tummy collection. I used tiny gold pearls for the necklace and bracelet. The shoes were coated with some Diamond Glaze just on the toes. I used my new Nestabilities die for the scalloped background as I thought it looked similar to the shape of the ornaments on the paper (Hobby Lobby)...



The inside of the card simply repeated some of the elements of the card front...
