Marvelous Magnolia Traditional Xmas colours

Good afternoon my lovely blogging friends! I feel so lucky today (not) I managed to grab a shift at work this evening on Christmas light switch on night. Will it be busy you ask? Well I work just across from Cheshire Oaks with the largest Christmas tree in Britain and then to top that we are just over the road from the huge cinema showing 4 screens of Twilight at midnight (sigh). I will just have to hold on to the fact that tomorrow I get to see Twilight twice (yes twice). I am seeing it with friends at 10.30am once I have dropped the kiddies at school and then again with a different friend in the evening at 8.30pm after the kiddies are in bed!!! Of course if anyone else wants to see it I would happily go again lol!
Anyway, enough of my waffle it's challenge time again at Marvelous Magnolia and we have the fab challenge of Traditional Christmas colours.
This is one of my commissioned xmas cards. I was told to feature a cat and who could resist this cute Tilda and cat combo! I have used Teresa Collins xmas papers along with a doily and gauze, some lace, jute, pearl string and flowers from WOC. My sentiment is Kaisercraft.
I have coloured my sweet image with prisma pencils. I have also masked her and created a distressed background with some magnolia snowflakes, DI and crackle paint.
We are so lucky this week to be sponsored by
I would like to enter this into Wild orchids Traditional Christmas, Papertake weekly flower power and Pennys paper crafty anything goes.
Thanks so much for coming by my blog and wish me luck for this evening!
Big hugs

Hi Rebekah,
This is fabulous! I love this Tilda with her cute little cat! Love how you've masked Tilda with the snowflakes, so they appear behind her too.
