Magnolia vs Stampavie challenge

I knew exactly what I wanted to do when I saw this challenge, but could I do it - no. Things would not go together how I wanted them to. The texture I used is mainly embossing. I embossed the background with the cuttlebug 'Winter house' folder on white vellum that had glitter dots on it and the tree onto Basic Grey which I distressed. Behind Edwin & Tilda I used ripped and torn mulberry paper as snow, the 'ice' that they are skating on is glossed with some stuff that is that old it's lost it's label. I used modelling clay on the fur bit of their coats and added Stickles to Tildas. I added some felt snowflakes but didn't like them - so off they came and I finished it with a satin ribbon bow and a small holographic snowflake and a greeting which I'm not happy about. This will come off and replaced when I decide what to use.

Just beautiful. Love how the triangle pice of vellum creates an illusion of a spotlight shining on the skating couple. Hugs from Desire
