A Christmas Tilda

OOh how I miss my alter-ego Steel Magnolia site!
Even though I have not been here, rest assured I have been 'Wheezar-ing' it up all thru the town!!


My card today, well, is a Tilda.
I have used stamps from my Winter kit that I ordered in the fall from Magnolialicious ( I think that's where I ordered them from). Anywho I paired up this lovely Tilda with the ornaments! I know, the ornaments kinda look like big red apples with gold glitter on the top, but use your imagination here people!

I have used the sketch from Friday's Sketchers (see bottom of post) & was inspired by the colors over at Magnolia Down Under where they want to see Red, Brown & Cream & I was more than happy to oblige;  with brown (& any other color) is my favorite to do!
At Just Magnolia, they want to see A Christmas Card & at The Crazy Challenge they want you to use 3 DP (DONE & DONE).
Not to forget all those challenges that want you to use your inking stamps & not digital, at Let's ink it up they want Christmas with sparkle/bling.  
Last but certainly not least I am entering my card into one of my fav online stores challenge, Bunny Zoes (have you seen the sales there lately----wooooowowwohooo! ) where they want sparkle & shine!

Ribbons are from a ribbon pack I bought on my gigantic craft shopping spree in the USA.
Brown, my fave ( as prev . mentioned-lol)

Bling, came outta the same shopping spree, in a package of Christmas buttons, accents and doo-dads!
I also bought the tag nesties during the same shopping spree.
Yup, some crazy A** shopping went down there! haha
This is the first time using my tags & could not stop with just this one......I had to finish the inside of the card with another one! (keep scrolling)

PS- sentiment is from Prairie Fairy Designs (set of 2 images & 7 sentiments).

The inside completed!
Oh ya & all the blingy sparkly papers are from that same shopping spree.
They are My Mind's Eye- O Christmas Tree glitter cardstock pkg.
I {heart} them!

I would also like to enter my card into A Spoon Full of Sugar (Christmas cards), The StampMan (use 3 colors- red, brown, cream) &  Winter Wonderland (Christmas baubles) & how could I forget Magnolia Stamp Lovers challenge of ornaments.  
Geesh I think I'm done!!
Happy Holidays everyone!

AKA Wheeza!
