Silent Night

Happy Tuesday to everyone I hope you are all well.  Its really miserable here today all dark and rainy so I have no intention of venturing out the door until 3pm when I have to do the school run.  How are you all doing with your Christmas preparations? I have a few cards done but as for presents I have the sum total of one best get my behind in gear me thinks! 
Anyway, I wanted to show you my latest card so here are some piccies:-

I used a Magnolia image this time and she has been coloured with distress markers and thankfully this one didn't end up in the bin!  Now would you believe the colour I used on her wings is the same as the lighter colour on her dress but once I'd added stickles it changed it.  The music sheet behind is the 'Silent Night' Magnolia stamp.  Papers used were some old Hot off the Press ones.  I decided to use a larger doily behind but had the great idea of glittering the whole thing first now that was messy!  My die cut heart is one from a set of three Marianne Design dies and I glittered that as well. 

Added some lace and ribbon, twine and little silver bells, a die cut message with wreath charm and dirtied it all up with Tim Holtz walnut stain.  Flowers were a mixture of Prima and WOC.

Last piccie is a close up of the adorable image and I think you can just make out the sparkly doily and heart.
Challenges I would like to enter:-
Catch up with you all later.  I hope you manage to get some crafty time in.
Take care.
