Christmas Tea For You And Me For Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog Color Challenge

Hello Everyone! It's that time again for another Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog Color Inspiration Challenge.  The challenge is being hosted by the talented  Eulanda. For this inspiration challenge, Eulanda has chosen this wonderful photo.

The Challenge is to use Red, White, Silver or Gold
on your card or project with the addition of Stickles or Glitter.
I hope it inspires you to play along with us! All you need to do is to use a MAGNOLIA IMAGE on your card or project. Your entry will give you an opportunity to be the winner of a Special Surprise Gift from Magnolia-licious, the best place to shop for Magnolias and many other wonderful things. I can't wait to see the cards that you create for this challenge!

Magnolia-licious has A Christmas Story Collection in stock with a 17% discount and the Nativity Collection with a 20% discount. Oh and I can't forget the 3 cute Special Edition Stamps with a 14% discount! And, with each #6 Christmas MagnoliaInk you purchase, you will receive a new stamp from Magnolia! How fun is that!.  .  . So many cute images to use on your holiday projects and for gifts for your friends who love Maggies!
Speaking of a wonderful gift for yourself or a friend, Diana  also has a great deal on the Mini Stamp Storage System! The price is just $10.00 for each system which includes a glossy white binder with turquoise logo on the front and spine, 5 double-sided insert sheets, and more than enough index cards for you to catalog your collection. The binder is about 12" x 12", holds 90 Mini Magnolia Stamps, and is such a marvelous way to organize your stash of Minis!
 For my card, I used Digi Design Papers from MyGrafico - Lilly Bimble Christmas Joy Collection and a Shiny Silver Card Stock from Wooten's. Joyful Tilda, from Magnolia-licious, was stamped on Cryogen White Card Stock and was colored using Alcohol Markers, Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. I paper pieced Tilda's Apron using a Poinsettia Digi Paper. I added Hero Arts Ultra Fine Prisma Glitter to the heart shaped cookies. I just love this image and I know I will be using it all throughout the year to make cards for my friends who love tea! The Silver Scalloped Border is sticker that I found at a local Dollar Store. The Lace Corner was cut using Cheery Lynn Designs Die #162. The Silver Pearls are from Michael's. The Small Red and White Roses and Buds are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The Large Red Roses are from my stash. The Red Glitter Berries and Silver Leaves are from  Michael's.
And, now for the Winner of My 1 Year Blog Anniversary Candy!
I want to thank all of you who left Anniversary Wishes for me and thank you those of you who also became followers! Big hugs for you all!! I really do appreciate it!!
