With All My Heart For Just Magnolia and Christmas Candy

Happy December Everyone! I still can't believe that it is already December!! Where has the year gone!!  In Southern California where in live, we have been experiencing unusually high winds.  Luckily, there has been no damage caused by them in my neighborhood.  I hope wherever you are that you are enjoying a beautiful day!!

Today at Just Magnolia and hAnglar & stAnglar Challenge Blog, we are being hosted by the talented Donalda. For this Special Monthly Challenge, the theme is Anything Goes along with the option of Lots of Sparkle. I had a lot of fun with this challenge!! If you like glitter like I do, I know you will have a lot of fun too!! I hope that you will come and join us!! Your entry will give you an opportunity to be this week's lucky winner of a wonderful prize from  
Simon Says Stamps!!

For my card, I used Red with White Polka Dots and Snowflake DP's from Three Bugs in a Rug -  Let It Snow Collection. I also used Red Glitter Paper from JoAnns. I used Martha Stewart - Snowflake Punch Around the Page that I purchased from HSN for the snowflake frame. I have to tell you that it looked like it had snowed in my craft room, because I don't know how many times I tried to punch the snowflake frame. LOL!!  The border would not match up with the corners. The instructions said to start with a 3 1/4" square.  I finally realized that it needed to be smaller, so I used a 3 3/16" square. Tilda with Snow Heart from Magnolia-licious was stamped on Cryogen White Card Stock and colored with Copic Markers, Prismacolor Pencils, and Gamsol. The snow heart was glittered with Hero Arts Ultra Fine Prisma Glitter. This is my favorite glitter!! I also used the glitter to re-glitter the snowflakes that I found at Michaels using Martha Stewart Glitter Glue. I wanted the snow heart and snowflakes to have the same color of sparkles. The red sparkle ribbon is from my stash.  I used the Bow Easy to make the bow.
