Just Magnolia - Mina's Sketch

I've actually managed a card other than my DT cards - the first in almost two weeks, and this one is for Just Magnolia one of Mina's fabulous sketches, I just love Mina's sketches - they're right up my street and a real dream to use.

I used one of my new Magnolias I bought at the NEC together with Magnolia papers, the flower one is "Under the Mistletoe" Christmas Angel and the cross strip is "White Christmas" Snow Script. If you haven't tried Magnolia papers I urge you to do so - they are so beautiful and such fabulous quality. The image is Christmas eve Tilda and is coloured with Copics and I gently coloured the edges with shimmery pastel chalks. The borders are cut with the MS lattice and the sentiment is Cornish Heritage Farms. The snowflakes are a right mixture - Spellbinders build a flake mainly, using, paper, acetate (covered with Stickles), glittered vellum and the white ones in the middle are laser cuts by Rayher. I finished them with Papermania pearl brads and  added leaves cut with Leone Em ash branch punch.
