Card For a Few Challenges

Hello!  I can't believe it's the end of the weekend already!  Where did the time go?  I hoped to have all my Christmas cards done by today, but it was not to be.  I've come down with a bit of a bug and didn't feel that great today.  Nevertheless, at least I got one more card done.   My card is for three challenges I like to do - Sketch Saturday #184, Just Magnolia Challenge (anything goes with an option of adding sparkle) and the Aud Sentiments Challenge #42 (holiday sentiment).

Here is the Sketch Saturday Challenge:

Here is my card for the challenges:

I started with a card base of GKD Cranberry Tart and layered with patterned papers from the Fancy Pants Christmas Magic collection.  My Magnolia image is Tilda Hanging Ornaments.  She was stamped on Cryogen White with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics.  I added some Baby Blue, Lime Green, Burgundy and Silver Stickles  to the colored image for my added "sparkle".  For the Aud Sentiments Challenge, I used the Christmas sentiment generously provided by Paulette at Create With TLC.   My scalloped border was created with Spellbinders Floral Doily Accents die.  A stitched satin bow, some adhesive pearls and a Prima Say It With Studs sticker finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by!  I'm going to turn in early and try to kick this bug.  I have no time for it this week!
Hope to see you soon!
