Magnolia Christmas

Afternoon all. Its a foul day outside, let's hope its not going to be like this for all of November. Anyway, other than walking (more likely dragging) the dog I can carry on crafting!
Craft class was cancelled this week 'cos Karen who keeps us in order has a bad back. Get well soon Karen. Well not to let an opportunity pass, Di and I had a trip out to the ladies at LOTV in Farsley. Far too many reasons to spend but I did reign myself in and limited  myself to some stamps, paper and a couple of dies. Couldn't wait to use the wonderful 'Starry Wreath' from Memory Box. Here is my latest effort.

I used the same Papermania word stamp to make the main paper, heat embossed with white then inked with Tim Holz 'Faded Jeans' and 'Tumbled Glass' I cut a hole to show the background which was inked around the edges with the same 'Faded Jeans' and an embossed circle of pale blue using a holiday words folder. The image 'Tilda with Holy baby' was coloured with Copics as follows:- 
Hair- Y21,26, YR24, E25
Skin- E000,00,11,R11
Clothes- B23,24,28,29 veil B00,02,05 blanket C0,01
Halo- Y02,15,17

The wreath was cut in white then highlighted with silver glitter. Ribbon from the stash. 

I will enter it in the following challenges
Ribbon Girl - Magnolia only
Midweek Magnolias - Lots of Layers
Heck of a challenge - In the frame
