Hello, happy Tuesday.  We are getting some snow today.  About 80 miles from here they are getting pounded, up to 30 inches of snow!  Still cleaning up in the city of Buffalo from last weeks lake effect storm.  Having to load snow onto trucks and take it away to get it off the side streets.  Hello Winter.

Today's card was made for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge, (#75) and the theme was Patchwork Background..  I used this adorable Tilda with reindeer antlers, which I just got, had been on pre-order since October!!!  I cut one inch pieces of two different card stock patterns from My Mind's Eye, which was glittered to make my background, mounted on a piece of glitter paper.  The medallion is made from a Martha Steward corner punch.  The reindeer running across the bottom is a punch by EK Success and I have embossed with sparkly embossing powder.  Ticket is from Tim Holtz.  Square paper doilies. Snowflake charm was a gift from a friend. Small heart is punched from red mirror paper.

Isn't she just darling.  The snowflake border she is sitting on is a stamp by Inkadinkado, stamped in Versafine, vintage sepia and embossed with rainbow embossing powder.  Lots of Stickles used also.

Close up of reindeer.

Ticket and red heart.

Beautiful snowflake charm, a gift from a friend.

I'm also entering this card at:

Just Magnolia (#84) - Sparkle
Magnolia-licious - Use letters or words
Totally Tilda - Use the word Love, or a heart

Have a great Tuesday.  Thanks for stopping by.  Until later...............
