Magnolia Design Team Christmas Blog Hop

Hi everybody and welcome to our November blog hop :) Are you guys excited?

We have 2 blog hops happening this month and I am your first stop :) We are all excited to be part of this hop and this is just a warm up for the annual December advent calendar. I hope you guys have fun!

And for this hop, let me share a card I made using one of the stamps from the club kit from Magnolia's latest collection Waiting for Christmas. And as usual, I have nothing but praise for this new collection :)

Sparkle Poinsettia Tilda
Materials: Cardstock: American Crafts; Patterned Papers: Magnolia; flowers: Magnolia, iamroses; Acrylic Angel: Magnolia; wood flourishes, pistils, pearl strings, pompom ribbon, pearls, lace, doily, corrugated board, stockinged bird, gesso, Stickles, Distress Ink; Stampendous Fragments and Frantage
Stamping: Stamp: Sparkle Poinsettia Tilda from the Waiting for Christmas collection; Copic Markers; Xpress It blending paper; Memento Ink

So my color scheme for this card is not your usual Christmas colors. I thought white would be really nice to make her poinsettias stand out.

And here are some close ups on how I arranged the embellishments (which next to coloring is one of my biggest challenges)..

In order for you to be eligible for the wonderful gift pack from Magnolia for this hop, just leave a comment on this blog post and the rest of the DT blogs participating on this hop. Here's a list of the DTs participating in the November 15 blog hop:
