Anything Goes...

...or so they say over at "Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar".

The week 110 challenge over at the challenge website states that Anything goes with the option of adding lace - the only stipulation is that the main image is a Magnolia or a hAnglar & sTanglar.
I'm still trying to build-up my Christmas card collection so decided that I would go down that avenue (it might just also have something to do with the fact that I have more Christmas Magnolias than everyday ones LOL).
I didn't want this card too fussy so I have kept the embellies to a minimum.

The PP is from Craft Creations Ltd and shades from dark lavender through to pink which was perfect for my image which I coloured in pink and lavender shades.

The christmas tree is cut with a Marianne die (3 times) and layered to create a taller tree - I cut it from the pink part of the PP as the background was covered with the lavender. The decorations on the tree are pearl coloured Card Candy that I coloured with my Copics and then blinged with the stickles. More stickles creates the effect of tinsel on the tree.
I used some white lacey trim across the card and mounted some lavender satin ribbon over the top. The same ribbon is used for the bow in the corner.

Hope this is okay for the challenge........................

Very impressed that you're making Christmas cards already! I expect this is why I still always end up buying my Christmas cards because I never start early enough! Great card though, thanks for sharing. Becky x
