Christmas In September

Hi my lovelies, this is a scheduled post (if all goes to plan), I'm having to schedule this as it will have been my birthday yesterday and we go away tomorrow, so I'm fairly sure that I will be running round like a headless chicken, lol.

This challenge at Midweek Magnolias we're bringing you Christmas In September, nice and easy. Who doesn't like making Christmas Cards? I know it's only September, but you can't start too soon, I've already got a few under my belt! I'm entering this card into the distressing challenge at Bunnyzoe's Crafts, I've both distressed and ink distressed.


I've used my Distress Markers to colour up Dancing Tilda With Stars, and used Crystal Glamour Dust on her wings and Gold Glamour Dust on the stars. The papers are from the new SIlent Night from Pion Design, I've used Church 12 x 12  and Church 6 x 6, the edges have been distressed with a Tim Holtz Distress Tool then machine sewn onto some Bazzil Bling which has been distressed using Walnut Stain.


The roses are from WOC, but the White Magnolia Shabby Chic Tinsel Dahlia is from here, the rolled roses are from Kort and Godt, I toned the blue one down a tad using some Gesso. I never throw any bits out, the bits of Jute Fabric that I pulled off an earlier card I've used to fasten two Silver Jingle Bells so that the dangle nicely. The holly leaves have been cut using a Tim Holtz die.



The two Rose Organza Trim roses are some more saved stash, I knew I'd find a place for them, lol. I've used Tilda Lace doohickey. I've tucked a Melissa Frances Mini Paper Bag and Tag behind Tilda and fastened a Snowflake Charm on using Storm Clouds Shabby Seam Binding.


There's also two White Vintage Pearl Brads, and some Cheesecloth.

Pop over to Midweek Magnolias there are some gorgeous card there for you to look at, we can't wait to see what you create. 

Hugs
