Pixie Tilda on snowy roof - Christmas Story collection

Hi everyone, hope you've had a good start to the week. I've been painting up some of the gorgeous new Christmas Story stamps and this is the very sweet Pixie Tilda on the background stamp snowy roof which makes it Christmas here :D, I absolutely love the stamps in this collection, well I always say that and I always do but there's something extra special about the Christmas stamps :).

I wish I'd taken a photo of the card from the side as it's very 3D which doesn't show unfortunately. The window is a die cut popped up over the magnolia background paper (wallpaper) and the little blind I've made using the tiny scallop Magnolia DooHickey die which is then concertina folded. Everything is painted with distress ink and distress ink Markers, watercolour markers and crayons and Tilda is cut out and popped up over the top with the Magnolia Let it Snow sentiment stamped and cut out as well. I've added lots of stickles, white paint and faux stitching to create the snowy night time scene.

I'm entering my card into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge where this week it's 'anything goes'.

Only a couple more days and I'm off to Sweden for the Magnolia weekend.....I can't wait!

Enjoy your evening :).
