MMSC #33 + challenge entries - Magnolia Winter Kit

Welcome to the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge 33 this week. This will be my last week being the Guest DT for MMSC and I have to tell you all how much I enjoyed the team. With the supportive DT and ongoing communication, some just cracked me out laughing, how would I not enjoy them :o) Thank you each of you of the MMSC DT for the support for this past month and I enjoyed every single moment :o)

Before I go on, let's congratulates all the award winners of MMSC 32
Midnight Madness Materpiece winner: Teri Sherman
Midnight Madness Remarkables winners Sue Drees and Ms Plum
Well done ladies!!!


Priscilla of "Priscillastyles"
Priscilla will be providing a stamp set to one lucky winner

Here is the sketch for this week's challenge (MMSC33)

I am using this card for more challenges and they are:

Cupcake Craft Challenge #71 - A time for celebration
Winter Wonderland #30 - Happy New Year
Quixotic Challenge #7 - Lace
Charisma Cardz #50 - Anything but Christmas
Paper Cutz Challenge #22 - New Year

Here is my finished card. I used a Tilda I got from the Magnolia Winter Kit of Sweden. I just couldn't wait to make anything using this kit when I received it, and this is my first creation of the kit. Firework is always on my mind for New Year and therefore, I choose a silvery DP and also used gold for shimmering. I picked some white scallop lace and adhered it on each edge of the cardstock and added some white flower lace trim in the middle.

Closer view on this pretty Tilda.

Champagne is needed to celebrate the New Year!! These images of bottle & glasses are also from the Magnolia Winter Kit.

I added stickle on the Prima flower to match the Gold & Silver for this new year theme card

Side view for the dimension of this card

Inside view. I couldn't believe I can't find any "Happy New Year" stamp around my craftroom, so instead, I wrote my own sentiment with a silver marker :o)

Thanks for stopping by and I also have another easel card I made using two other Magnolia images for a friend's engagement, but it will not be posted until I give it to her next week. See you soon.

Eulanda said...

Ok first of all I hope you had a wonderful christmas and would like to send you wishes for a wonderful New Year's!! Secondly, your card is FABULOUS!! I love all the gold you used to accent everything! Looks great! Thirdly, you got your kit?!! I ordered it and they have it marked it "waiting for bank authorization" and it's "not shipped" yet. I have emailed them twice now and will phone them next week but am somewhat disappointed right now. My credit card has been charged already ... last AUGUST!! Did you have such troubles with prior sets? Anyway, you have yourself some good time off!! Take care!!

Sue said...

Cabio, this card is just stunning. All that silver and gold sparkle and that image is just too cute. I'm not sure I am ready for little Tilda to be wearing heels, but I love this one. So much detail to look at and enjoy.

Speaking of enjoying. I received the package in the mail of the wonderful pillow box, ornament and
card that I won in the Blog Hop. I absolutely love the acetate window you created and can't wait to try it. Everything was lovely and I was so excited to have won and then to actually receive it and look it all over. Thanks again so much, I was a lucky girl when my name was picked!!!!

I love this card!! You don't normally make cards that are darker, but when you do, they turn out just as nice as your other ones!! Great New Year theme.
