What's the opposite of Clean & Simple?

Answer: My card for this month's Magnolia-licious Inspiration Challenge! bwahahaha!!

Soooo...once again, I'm your hostess with the mostess!! Red or white wine? Ahem...I mean, coffee or tea? Just kidding...or am I?! hehehe!! I'm getting a little excited about Thanksgiving this week...so you'll have to forgive me! Ya know what comes right after Thanksgiving, don'tcha? Christmas!! Wheeeeeeee!! So...in case you need some coaxing to make a Christmas card or two...here's my photo for this month's Magnolia-licious Inspiration Challenge:

Pretty gorgeous, huh?! Hmmm...what to do, what to do? Fires? Fireplaces? Ornaments? Gold? Trees? Christmas? So many options!! I went with a Christmas theme!! And without further ado, here's my card...

Isn't this new Tilda such a cutie patootie? She's called "Winter Tilda" and is currently available as a "mini" at Magnolia-licious HERE. I masked her so that I could add the a couple of Magnolia "minis" (Snowy Hug and some cute little pine trees) behind her...to give some fun perspective!!

Oh...I stamped these images with Memento London Fog to give a little softer look! Here's another side view...
