Live & Love Craft Sunday Inspiration

God morning friends, 
It's my turn to showcase a project  Live and Love craft inspiration and challenge blog today. We are having an angel-theme this week. You should stop by the blog to see the gorgeous creations of the DT this week. Angels are perfect for the upcoming season, and I found one of my older magnolias and made a Christmas card in blues and whites.  

I used papers from the lovely Pion design; Guardian Angel 6x6. I added some light blue Jute Ribbon and the gorgeous Vintage Scallop Lace Trim. I colored the Magnolia stamp with Distress Ink. The pearls are Melissa Frances white pearls and I added i piece of cheese cloth behind the image. The punches and dies are from Martha Stewart, Magnolia doohickey's and spellbinders. The postmark stamps and sentiment are from Kort og Godt.

I colored my Magnolia Angel with distress ink pads and markers. 
I used: tattered rose and vintage photo for the skin. The cheeks are a mix of aged mahogony and tattered rose. I used antique linnen, walnut stains and a touch of vintage photo for the hair, black sooth for the dress and wings, stormy sky for the shadow and mustard seed and vintage photo for the star. The stamps around Tilda are some older magnolia snowflakes.

The beautiful Shabby Seam Binding is now in restock at the LLC Store, I use the sky blue one here. I also used a Vintage Pearl Brad from Creative Charms and a silver Jingle bell- perfect for any Christmas project.

 The big flower is put together with Doily Flower dies- Magnolia doohickey's.  I used  distress ink to color some of them to match my blue card, and I stamped with snowflakes on the big one. The roses are from WOC and the charms are from my stash. I also attached a little piece of pearl string and a Vintage Trinklet Heart Pin.

Here's a peak at the inside too. 

I would like to enter the following challenges: 
Wild Orchid Flowers: #61 Silver or gold. (silver: charms, jingle bell and brad)
Fussy And Fancy Challenge: #74 Anything Goes


Hope you liked it!
