Simply Magnolia November Midway Challenge-"CAS or Fully Loaded"

Happy Wednesday dear blogging friends!

Well we're half way through the week AND half way through the month of November...YIKES...gotta get going on those Christmas cards!!  So it being the half way mark of the month that means it's Team Glamour's turn at Simply Magnolia...our current theme is super have a choice between "CAS or Fully Loaded"!  For those who visit me you know that "Fully Loaded" will always be my choice...CAS scares the daylights out of me...LOL!!  I SO admire those of you can pull off a beautiful CAS card!!

Last Friday I opened my front door and there on the porch was a package from Maja Design that I had won in The Ribbon Girls' October challenge...well I opened the package and it was JAM PACKED with the gorgeous new collection "Joyous Winterdays"...oh my goodness I was SO excited that I couldn't wait to get busy using this super new collection!!!

Here is what I came up with...
please click on the first picture for a closer view/slideshow...
my card base was made using Spellbinders Grand Dahlia die cut...
DP is the super yummy "Joyous Winterdays"...
the snowflakes are a Joy Craft die...
the tags tucked under the bow were made using a Marvy punch...
"Merry Christmas" is from Scrapiniec...painted silver...
I went back to an oldie here...
this little darling is "Tilda with Rudolph" from the Christmas Story 2012 collection...
coloured with my copics...

I layered up the bow with some silver/white string that I got from Michaels and gray chiffon from my stash...
