Midweek Magnolias Challenge #147-"Red/Blue/White

Well happy Wednesday everyone!!

Today at Midweek Magnolias we begin a brand new's "Red/Blue/ always we are sponsored by the wonderful Magnolia Sweden!!

Now I have to tell you that I had something totally different in mind and then when I sat down I thought "Hmmm...what about a red, blue and white Christmas card?"  I have been having so much trouble getting back into things that I've been leaning towards all my favourite of my all time favs is the one I went with for today's card!!

Here is what I came up with...
please click on the first image for a closer view/slideshow...
using Go Kreate # 360030 I cut my base with white...the matts were made using the same die cut (next smaller size) and DP is Maja Design "Vintage Frost Basics" 6 x 6 paper pad...
I added some cheesecloth distressed with Memento Paris Dusk...
 one of my all time favourite Tildas is "It's Cold Outside" from the Waiting for Christmas 2014 collection...
coloured with my copics...
accented with Snow Tex, Glamour Dust, Liquid Pearls and Glossy Accents...
stick pin is decorated with red beads...
"Holiday Wishes" is Stampingbella...die is Whimsy "Notables 2"...
poinsettias are Wild Orchid Crafts...
in the centre of the white one I added a red berry cluster and white pearls on the red ones...

And I have my first Christmas card for this year!!  Now it's time for you to pay a visit to Midweek wonderfully talented team mates have some gorgeous makes for inspiration!!
