Let It Snow For Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog Inspiration Challenge

 Hello Everyone! It time for another Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog 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 make a Pink Christmas Card or Project.
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 hope that you stop by Magnolia-licious store to see something new that we are doing. The design team has been busy coloring the images from  A Christmas Story Collection and Nativity Collection and more. What a great way to see them without the Magnolia watermark.
While you are at Magnolia-licious, don't forget to take a look at the fantastic special on Mini Stamp Storage System! The price is just $10.00 .  .   . Normally $23.99!  Each system 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! What a great gift to give a friend this holiday season. .   .along with a Mini or two!  Oh, and you don't want to miss out on the new #6 MagnoliaInk Magazine. It comes with a free exclusive Magnolia Image. . . Tilda with Puppy. It is so darn cute!
For my Card, I used Merry and Bright Design Paper from We R Memory Keepers, Digi Design Paper from MyGrafico - Kelly Medina Christmas Collection, and White Glitter Paper from Joann Craft and Fabric Store.  Snowy Tilda, from A Christmas Story Collection, was stamped on Cryogen White Card Stock and was colored using Alcohol Markers, Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol.  3 layers of White Doodlebug Flock was added to Tilda's scarf using Sakura Quickie Glue Pen. I also added Recollections Snow Extra Fine Glitter to the scarf on top of the flocking and to Tilda's dress, and Hero Arts Prisma Glitter to the snowflake Tilda is holding.  I used the Spruce Magnolia Doohickey to cut the trees and the Frosty Border from Memory Box to cut the snowflake border. The large snowflake is from Michael's. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The white berries are from Joann Craft and Fabric Store. I added Hero Arts Prisma Glitter to them as well. The ribbon is from Wooten Scrapbook Company. And, the snowflake charm is from a pair of earrings that I bought at JCPenney.
Thank you for stopping by for a visit today! I hope you take a moment to visit the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog and see all the gorgeous cards and projects that my teammates have created!! I also hope you stop by Magnolia-licious to see all the wonderful deals that Diana is offering.
Before I close, I have some exciting news to share with you! On Thursday, November 29th,  Magnolia-licious Highlites is having a Blog Hop.
