MMSC #31 and Eleven Other Challenges

Happy holidays everyone!! Here is my most recent creation just in time for the upcoming celebration! It is filled with greens and reds and most of all, encompasses the holiday spirit! I have used the sketch from Midnight Madness. I have a slew of challenges I want to enter with this card. Since I have used the beautiful Tilda, I have entered her into the Magnolia Down Under challenge which is to have a bedazzled card. The Everybody-Art Challenge is to use red and green. Stampavie and more challenge number 73 is red and green also! My Time to Craft challenge 69 is to include Christmas foliage. A new challenge blog I found is called Nutshells and their requirement is to use ribbon. One of my favorite challenge blogs, The Pink Elephant, has a challenge requiring your favorite Christmas combo. The Cuttlebug Challenge this week is to use glitter. Challenge #49 over at Charisma Cardz Challenge is to use red, green, and silver. The Creative Card Crew challenge wanted gold and silver in the creation. The Cupcake Craft Challenge #69 is to sing a Christmas carol on your card. The Just Magnolia Challenge this time is "It's Christmas!". The Stamptacular Sunday Challenge is to have sparkle and shine on your card.

Wow now after all those challenges, here is what I made!

Here is my creation with an ornament:Here is the card alone:

What fun it was to use Tilda again. It seems like it has been way too long. The Magnolia images are so much fun to color. Thanks so much for visiting and let me know what you think!!
