Noel ~ The-Day-Before-Christmas Edwin

Happy Sunday Everyone!
Hope you are all keeping well.

It is chilly out there, brrrr... We've had some freezing temperature
here in Vancouver and had our first snow fall Friday night.
Wasn't much snow but it feels like winter is here already.

Today, I have a new DT card to share with you.
I made a star shape card for The Ribbon Girl's last Magnolia Only
challenge for this year; the theme is an easy one ~ Christmas!


The stamp I used is The-Day-Before-Christmas Edwin.
I have colored the image with Distress Ink pads and dusted
glitters here and there for extra sparkles.


The following embellishments are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
9mm white/white spot organza, natural hemp twine, shiny red berry,
Kort and Godt blue rolled rose flower and ivory beaded berries,
brown cone, 3mm aqua bead string, 6mm sticky tape.

Designer paper and Sentiment ~ Magnolia

Dies ~ QuicKutz Nesting Stars, Memory Box, Magnolia, La La Land
(I have used the Magnolia poinsettia dies to make my own
poinsettia flower. You can find my tutorial here.)

We would love it if you can join in the fun creating and win great
prizes from The Ribbon Girl and Magnolia Sweden.
