Magnolia challenge on DC and some christmas vibes...

Hello everyone and thanks for stopping by my little blog! 
Over on DoCrafts the weekly Magnolia challenge this week is 3-2-1 - using 3 colours (plus fleshtones), 2 brads,buttons or eyelets and 1 ribbon.
I chose a brow/green/pink scheme with pink eyelets and ribbon with all three colours in. I coloured Tilda with broom using distress inks and a waterbrush and layered some Basic Grey Sultry papers that I aged a bit with distress ink as well. The sentiment is a stamp I designed myself.

I have been playing a little with some christmas images and papers as well and came up with this little card using Christmas Honey from Sugar Nellie and I coloured her with my trusty copics.
Papers are from Basic Grey again, Figgy Pudding range, ribbon is from Anitas, sentiment from Whiff of Joy.

Oh, and if you stop by the lovely Lauras blog here, you'll see she has a new header... that I made for her. I think it turned out quite nice, even though it doesn't quite fit *lol*
Thanks for stopping by today and please let me know you've been by leaving a comment, it makes my day!
