I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas - Magnolia-Licious - Winter Themed

We have a special challenge for you at Magnolia-Licious as both teams have come together to create a plethora of fabulous samples for you to enjoy!
Our challenge is "Winter" so grab a Tilda or Edwin with their hats, gloves and scarfs on and get creating!
We don't get a lot of Wintery type weather (apart from cold) here in Texas so it is always fun to dream and create around this theme. I decided to use the adorable Winter Skates Tilda as the star of my card and kept it all blue and icy :)

Card Recipe:
Image - Winter Skates Tilda

Paper - Winter Bundle by Authentique
Sentiment - Lily of the Valley Grungy Christmas
Die - Labels 25 by Spellbinders
Ribbon - Martha Stewart
Snowflakes - Dress It Up
Flowers - Recollections
Rhinestones - The Paper Studio

I drew a little wall for Tilda to sit on, always makes her look better grounded I think, and I love how the blue and aqua just make the whole thing pop.
Anyway I hope I have made you think of Winter a little and that you will have time to come along and play with us at Magnolia-Licious in this challenge>

Definitely fun colors Katie and skilled coloring! I am embarrassed to say how long it took to figure out what those rings were thru the toe of the tennis shoes! LOL! Once I did, I confirmed with the name of this Tilda in your Recipe - I should have done that first! Thank you for playing “Anything Goes – with an optional twist of Holiday Thanks or a Hostess Gift” at our house!
