Just Magnolia-Crafty Angels-BG Challenges

Good morning! Today I'd like to share with you a card I made with 3 challenges in mind.

I used this cute Tilda from the Winter kit and coloured her using distress inks. I distressed the background with Antique Linen and edged with Vintage Photo.

A close up of the pleating, which gives great texture to the card

As always, I've added sparkle to  my flowers using stickles.

Image: Magnolia Tilda 
Papers: BG Wisteria, BG Porcelain
Tools: MS 2Dot punch, McGill Pine Leaf punch, scoring board
Heart Charm, stickles, pin wheels & distress inks are all available HERE.

TFL and have a great day. The temps have started to rise and we've even had a little rain. Of course, on Friday, the schools decided to close for 3 days this week as there was a lot of snow expected..  we didn't get it but they still didn't reopen the schools. Only in Ireland... lol.
