Christmas All Year Long - the February Edition

Hi everyone! Welcome to the Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long blog hop! If you've come here from Barb's blog, you're in the right place! If you get lost, or just happened to come visit my blog for other reasons and would like to check out the hop, start here at the Magnolia-licious ChristmasAllYearLong blog.

This is the image I had coloured for last month's hop. Then root canals happened, along with the accompanying vicodin. So I saved her for this month. I'm kind of glad I did, because in the interim, I've acquired liquid applique - and I love the texture it gives to Tilda's snowsuit! It looks neat and it feels really cool, too.
I used Jen del Muro's Valentine's "Sketch for You to Try", Basic Grey's Eskimo Kisses patterned paper and some mystery cardstock. The sentiment, which is by A Muse stamps, is done with Peeled Paint Distress Ink & clear embossing powder. Tilda is coloured with Copic Markers, liquid applique and Frosted Lace Stickles (her wings.)

The card is also for Incy Wincy Challenge #31 - texture; Lexi's Creations Challenge #8 - anything goes; Flutter By #98 - anything goes (plus butterflies, fairies or angels); Creatalicious Challenge #7 - create a little something; and lastly, Color Throwdown #81.

Keep on hopping your way over to Charlene's blog. Enjoy the rest of the hop and have a great day!
