ROP DT- A card for Someone Special

Whoever this "Someone special" might be? Who will receive my "Special" card?? Mmmm.. a secret for now! :) I'm sure she will read this, so no names :)

Well, but I can share the card with you, no? :) Of course! I just LOVE the Magnolia stamps Summer sent me, I recieved them a couple of days ago, and couldn't wait to have inked them all up. I decided to start with this darling Maggie.. isn't she cute? I LOVE this image.. and I know lots of you do. she so reminds me of the Nativity plays the kids do every Christmas at school!

I read this week that Just Magnolia have their monthly challenge - a card for someone special. And I know that if you want to give something to someone special.. it MUST be special, no? So I wanted to do a card that is not a regular 6x6.. I looked around for inspiration. I admit I found it when I visited the new Challenge blog Sketchy Colours, and I saw Marianne's card. I knew that I wanted to do something similar, but with a Maggie of course. So I used their sketch, and I cased her card, and I hope it will also inspire you to make one yourself. I love how it turned out. I will also enter it for Stamp something's and Magnolia Down Under's challenges.. thay want to see bling and shine.. they got it! :)

As for papers, I used Papermania 12x12 Joyeux Noel, and I coloured Tilda with Distress Inks and Reinkers. As for the background though, I used Copics:

E000, E00, E11, E21, E35

When it was dry, and I was satisfied with the colouring I added Stickles to her hair band, dress and wings. I also used a white gel pen to create a snow is falling effects, and this by making dots randomly.. thanks Lils for the lovely idea :) I also covered with Stickles two felt snowfalkes. When they were dry I added Basic Grey Half Pearls, to match the ones I used on the card, bigger in size.

The inside is plain, but I made a sentiment on one of the smaller panels. Hopefully this week I'll have some Stempelglede stamps (Hurray :) and I can decorate the dotting panel's corners before it goes to its recipient ;)

Flowers are from my stash, and before I put the Stickles in its place, I touched the edges of both flowers with it, for some bling. You can see it better in this photo. Finally I added a piece of gold ribbon, to make a bow. It will be used to close the card, and it adds a lovely touch.

Thank you for coming to visit me today. I hope you like my Angel Maggie,if you want her Summer has them in stock right now..this cutie pie and her sisters :) Lovely new goodies in as well lately in her store! Check it out! :) But hurry up, or you won't find any, cause they're going like cheesecakes! This release is one of Magnolia's best(ok I almost always say that!), and Summer will make sure you have your babes as soon as possible! :) I hope you'll come back again. Double thank you if you decide to leave me a comment. Smiles!

Thanks for looking
