Advent Calendar Door 15

Hello everyone, today I am delighted to open the door on Magnolia's Christmas Advent Calendar! and I have a card to show you featuring stamps from the Magnolia Nativity and Christmas Story Collections 2012.

For my card I have used Holy Tilda with Lamb and I have stamped her with Memento rich cocoa ink for a softer look and she is coloured with copics. The DP is some I had in my stash so I am not sure of the brand. I inked some card with antique linen and vintage photo distress ink and I stamped the Holly Swirl stamp from the Magnolia Christmas Story Collection 2012. I used a DooHickey Tag die and I inked it with DIs and stamped it with the Jingle Jangle Snowflake from the same collection.

I used a DooHickey die to create the swirl and I finished off with some lace, ribbon and pearls. Finally, I used a die from Joy Crafts to create my card stand.

To be entered into the draw for Magnolia's Advent Prize, please leave a comment below and I will be back tomorrow to announce the randomly drawn winner. Good luck and Merry Christmas!
