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)

B97, 95, 93, 91 000 w/Indigo Blue pencil (blues)

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

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