Just Magnolia Special Monthly Challenge

Wow! Friday is already here! I just can't believe how quickly time is going by.  Christmas will be here before you know it.  Friday means a new challenge at Just Magnolia and Hanglar Stanglar Challenge blog.  Since it is the first challenge of the month our challenge is "Anything Goes with the option of Pearls and Lace". Our sponsor is a $25 Voucher from Simon Says Stamp.

Card Ingredients:

Stamps:  Magnolia Holly Tilda from Magnolia-licious
Inks:  Distress Inks
Paper:  Bo Bunny
Tools:  Spellbinders Artisian Accents
Embellishments:  Dark Red Sm. Gardenia, Holly Berries, 25mm Ivory Open Roses, and self adhesive pearls all from Wild Orchid Crafts!!!! The velvet ribbon is from Hobby Lobby, the gorgeous lace from a sweet blogging friend, and the cute holly leaves from my friend Jacque!  Flower soft has been added as a border around Tilda.

She is so cute isn't she?! Awe!!! I love her hair!
That's about it for me today! I'll be back soon with another sneak peek from LOTV!!

Thanks again for coming by my little blog to say hello!

Hugs, Dena
