It's the SECOND Tuesday already?

Seriously?! How did that happen?! Clearly I've lost a full week somewhere along the way!! Fortunately, my DT sistahs over at Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog are keeping me in line...and I was up half the night coloring! hehehe! Good thing too, since I'm the "hostess" for this month's challenges! la le la de da!! Okey dokey, my lovelies...are ya ready?! For this month's Magnolia-licious Color Challenge, I've chosen...

Silver & Blue

And here's a gorgeous photo for inspiration! (Hmmm...Christmas is coming, right?! LOL!)

Pretty stunning, huh?! But...where are the diamonds? hehehe! So...without further ado, here's my card...

Isn't this the most adorable little Tilda? She's called "Ice Tilda" and is currently on re-order at Magnolia-licious. I masked her so that I could add the Winter Fence...which Diana has as a Mini HERE! I love the snow on the fence...it's Liquid Applique! And the snow on the ground is, of course, Polar White Flower Soft mixed with a little coarse glitter from that clever little Martha Stewart!

Oh...I stamped these images with Memento Rich Cocoa ink rather than Tuxedo Black...it just gives it a softer look!  Here's the rest of my Card "Recipe"...

Cardstock: Creamy Caramel  & Baja Breeze (Stampin' Up)
DPs: Bo Bunny's Snowfall Collection
Ribbon & diamonds: my stash
Flowers & metal filagree corners: Wild Orchid Crafts
Nestabilities circle & scalloped circle dies
MS winter twig punch
Sentiment: Whimsy

And, in case you hadn't noticed, I slathered silver Stickles over anything that wasn't crawling away from me! It seemed like a brilliant idea at 3:00 a.m., trust me!! hehehehe!!

Copics & Prismacolor pencils used...

E21, 00, 000, 0000 w/Peach & Light Peach pencils (skin)
R20 w/Nectar pencil (cheeks)
E29, 27, 25, 23, YR21 w/Sienna Brown pencil (hair & fence)
B97, 95, 93, 91 000 w/Indigo Blue pencil (blues)
BG0000 (highlights)

I kept the inside pretty simple...except for a few more "diamonds"!! bwahahaha!!

And...last, but certainly not least...

Alrighty then...now it's time for you to pop on over to Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog and feast your eyes on the gorgeous creations by my uber talented DT sistahs! Then...please join in the fun by making and entering your own project into this month's Magnolia-licious Color Challenge. Remember, one lucky participant (selected at random, of course) will win a $25.00 gift voucher for a Magnolia-licious Shopping Spree!! Whooohooo!!

Pat, she is gorgeous! She looks excellent in the blue. Everywhere I have looked she is sold out. Your snow is so good you could sell it to the Eskimos. (He.He.)

Beautiful and cozy scenery. Lovely card. The more I look at your card the more I like this stamp. Not sure why I didn't get the one. It's going to be in my wishlist :-)

Pat, this is just gorgeous. You are just amazing. Seriously it only took you half the night the finish this? It took me to half the morning to finish mine and it's not as detailed...LOL. Wasn't tha crazy?
Love this Tilda image--can't wait to colour mine. Tilda looks gorgeous in blue--nice scene--and love the liquid applique. I've only used it the first time the other day and loving the effect. Love the card.

I am only gonna say it once - gorgeous!

Wow! This is one of my fave winter cards ever! It surely brings the snow in my home and makes me want it... since winter with all the cold is far from being my favorite season, let me tell you that means something:) Love the little scene and this cute Tilda; I wish I had ordered her too:(. The snow looks fantastic and so does your coloring!
